The Year Book of Boston College 




(Bm 5Srotf)eri)ooti 

By Joseph [. Whalen, '09 


The city looks oft' towards the heights lately won 

For our Alma Mater and each loyal son, 

Beholding that fair tower, catches a gleam 

Of Beauty enchanted, held fast in a dream; 

A dream of past glories and future hright days. 

Of noble endeavors that heighten her praise 

Of the brave, the undaunted, the chasubled knight, 

True son of Loyola, determined to fight 

And still to fight failure until he achieved 

The promising heights and the plan he conceived! 

Ah, say, in the midst of the fury and sound. 

Where sham and self-seeking and envy abound 

Does a pure heroism exalt us like wine? 

Does our just pride ci-y out: "Here's a brother of mine?' 


The standard is set. Let our cry be the same 

In every crisis whatever we aim. 

Rejoicing to feel that our brothers may ride 

Whene'er they are called, with the first, side by side; 

As when we received the great news from afar — 

Ch'rist's Vicar while seeking a luminous star 

To beacon and flash in a pathway of truth 

From our kindred had chosen the pride of our youth. 

Alma Mater rejoiced, sent her son and sent this — 

The proud crest he wears : " Vigor in arduis." 

Alma Mater, thy dreams of ascendancy grand 

Throng with brave hearts that await thy command. 

And each sterling heart bears an emblem, some sign 

To inspire our glad cry : " Here's a brother of mine ! "

HE Sub Tiirri Staff herewith present to the Class of 1913, the Alumni, 
students, and friends of Boston College, the first Year Book ever 
published by any class here. 

The occasion which prompted us to inaugurate this new activity, 
was the Golden Anniversary of the founding of Boston College, and 
the dawn of the newer and brighter life, in its worthier home. 
Another more personal motive was that we ourselves might have, as 
it were, a treasury of the happenings " Under the Tower " during the 
four brightest years in our lives, — and possess a lasting record of our 
classmates, their achievements great and small, during our close 

The expectations of our fellows, and the greatness of the occasion, 
make us feel the more the imperfection of our work. However, we 
frankly state that its greatest claim to praise lies, not in its own merit, 
for we realize only too well how deficient it is in that respect, but in 
its being the first of its kind here; in its showing to later classes 
possibilities of development without which aid they might hesitate 
long before venturing upon such unknown waters. As we, its editors, 
find in its youth its greatest merit, on the other hand we beg you, its 
readers, to ascribe to its youth, and to its youth alone, its many faults. 

And you, our classmates, if in years to come you should take this 
volume from its dusty resting-place, and by perusing its contents live 
over again some of the scenes of these happy days, and enjoy the 
pleasures of reminiscence, we will feel that it has accomplished its 

This book as you view it now is the best possible product of our 
abilitj', under the existing circumstances of inexperience and limita- 
tions of time. So with charity to all, we submit to you the result of 
our labor of love, and will feel in j^our appreciation our ample reward.

HE Class of Nineteen Hundred Thirteen wishes hereby to express its 
lasting gratitude to the patrons of the first Year Book of Boston 
College, who, appreciating the greatness of the initial cost of such 
an undertaking, by tiieir gracious generosity helped to secure for it 
more completeness and success. We would be indeed remiss should 
we fail to voice our appreciation of the encouragement and coopera- 
tion we have experienced from the Faculty in general, especially from 
Frs. Gasson and Gcoghan, S. J. To Mr. E. A. Grozier of the Boston 
Post and Mr. William Kenney of the Boston Globe we are particularly 
indebted for the kind courtesies they extended us. To Fr. De Butler 
we owe many of our photographs. To the Stylus also, and last but 
not least, to the Class, the committee owe a word of thanks for their 
enthusiasm, without which nothing could have been accomplished. 








































C|)e Olollege Beautiful 

By Timothy Wilfred Coakley, '84 

Because fact is born of vision, because faith makes all things whole, 
We have prayed that our eyes be single and swerve not from the goaL 
Look ! On the grass-clad hilltop, where chestnut and maple blow. 
And the groping elm-trees yearn to the mother-green below, 
Embodied in marble and granite, throned on the lake's clear blue, 
Real as the sky and the sunshine, the Dream that we dared is come true. 

It is builded, our stately cloister, where Wisdom makes her home. 
The stem-like columns flower into arch and sculptured dome. 
The pillared halls are vaulted and lofty like the night 
And each embrasured window is a rose of rainbow light. 
Behold the court of science, and yonder the house of art ; 
And higher yet, God's altar, aflame with the Sacred Heart. 

Here Goodness, Truth and Beauty are worshipped as one, not three. 

And Faith companions Reason ; and Order, Liberty. 

Here echoes the mystic Word which only the angels ken ; 

Here beckons a Light to the Gentiles. The Rabbi is teaching again. 

The children of men are patterned on a God self-sacrificed, 

And the circle of life is centered and squared on the Cross of Christ. 

In the glowing forge of boyhood, tomorrow is wrought today. 

What we think in our hearts, we shall be, we create when we dream or pray. 

So we pay our debt to the future, that righteousness may not cease ; 

Humanity here is drilled to fight for the Prince of Peace. 

Soldiers, equipped, alert, mount guard at the Gate of Truth, 

The Company of Jesus, the living fort of youth. 

Scholars are they and priests, yet ever, and foremost, chums, 

For goodly and great is learning, but love can solve all sums : 

And these serve under Him Whom only love can reach 

And who came as a friend to friends, since only a friend can teach. 

Loyola, we bring by the million recruits for the war you plan. 

God's Laity marches behind you. Hear the long acclaim of cur clan ; 

We are the stone of the corner, the body of belief. 

We rear college and altar. We are the world's relief. 

Saints and martyrs and sages, prelates and pontiffs all 

They are the answers we offered when we heard the Master call. 

Patriarch, prophet and psalmist, to each our lines we trace. 

Flesh of our flesh is the beauty that was Mary's virgin face. 

Ours is the flock and fold of the spotless Lamb of God; 

We gave to Christ the blood that drenched Golgotha's sod. 

Life gives and is given forever to foil the miser. Death. 

Love is the price of living and breath is spent for breath. 

.What yet may we give, dear Lord, that is worthy in Thy sight? 

In Thy name, all we have, all we are, we proffer our College tonight. 

Lord, hear the prayer of Thy people. At Thy heart we have kindled a star. 

Let its radiance grow in the darkness 'till all men sight it afar 

And are drawn to the Flame that feeds it, to the Light the world has lacked. 

And the shadows pass and the semblance and we face the Eternal Fact.

HE occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of Boston 
College is a fitting time to look back into the past and review the 
remarkable growth of an institution which is now completing a half- 
century of life. It is especially fitting that the class of 1913, the binding 
link which unites the old home with the new, should tell this graphic 
story of fifty years of progress and achievement. 

The Jesuits came to Boston in 1847 at the invitation of Bishop 
Fitzpatrick and they settled at St. Mary's in the North End under the 
leadership of Father McElroy, S.J. The rapid growth of the parish 
and the desire of Father McElroy to open a school for boj^s made it 
imperative to purchase additional property. Accoi'dingly land was 
purchased on Harrison Avenue for the future Boston College on 
August 1st, 1857. The untiring efforts and the willing sacrifice of 
Father McElroy were rewarded by the completion of the buildings 
in 1859. 

The old college building was somewhat smaller than the present 
one on James Street. At that time it embraced that portion which is 
now the central portion of the later building, so that those rooms 
occupied by the college classes at present, the library and the chapel, 
were added several years later. Opening in 1860 as a house of studies 
for members of the Jesuit Order, it did not assume its present character 
until 1864, when on September 5th, a score or more of day scholars 
were enrolled in its catalogue. 

On April 1st of the previous year the college received its charter 
from the State of Massachusetts, with the power to confer degrees, 
except Medical degrees. The aim and purpose of the training at 
Boston College has always been " not proxiinately to fit the student

for some special employment or 
profession, but to give him a gen- 
eral, vigorous, and rounded devel- 
opment as will enable him to cope 
successfully even with the unfore- 
seen emergencies of life." The lay- 
ing of a solid sub-structure in the 
mind for any super-structure of 
science, professional or special, also 
for the molding of correct moral, 
civil, and religious principles, is in 
short the purpose of all Jesuit 
teaching. To this end a prescribed 
course was offered. The curriculum 
included instruction in the classical 
languages, poetry, rhetoric, and a 
tiiorough training in philosophy. 
Since that time, the course has been 
somewhat varied. 

Father Bapst, the famous victim 
of the Knownothing outbreaks in 
Maine, assumed charge in 1862 and 
remained as the head of Boston 
College until 1869. He was suc- 
ceeded by Father Fulton, who is 
probably the best known Jesuit 
Boston College has ever had as its 
President. Famous for his spark- 
ling wit and his ability as an organ- 
izer, his name is still upon the lips 
of many Boston Catholics. During 
his long term of office he founded 
the Young Men's Catholic Associa- 
tion, which has since become a 
worthy adjunct of the college. 

Although the attendance at the 
College in the early days was very 
small, we find that the students 
were very active in athletics and 
dramatics. The Shakespearean 
dramas, as well as farce comedies, 
were frequently presented by the

Previous to 1877 no degrees were 
conferred, for the course was in- 
complete until that year. But in 
June of that year degrees were con- 
ferred for the first time upon the 
graduates. In September, 1879, the 
original classical course was some- 
what extended and was made to 
include English, Sciences, and Mod- 
ern Languages. It seems hardly 
credible that forty years ago tlie 
combined attendance at the High 
School and College was less than 
150. The youth of those days were 
just as anxious for holidays as their 
children, for the records show thai 
when the student body reached tlie 
150 mark a holiday was sought from 
the Reverend President. 

When Father Fulton ended his 
term as President in 1881, until his 
return in 1888, the college had dur- 
ing the interval four ditterent lead- 
ers. Fathers O'Connor, Broussard, 
Stack, and Russo. During the terms 
of these presidents many activities 
were initiated. The true life of no 
school is bounded by the chart- 
hung walls of its class-rooms. Mu- 
sic, Literature, and Athletics re- 
ceived a special cultivation. The 
football and baseball teams of the 
80's won many games on gridiron 
and diamond from the colleges and 
universities of the East. Societies 
of many kinds, rooted in the spon- 
taneous enthusiasm of the pupils, 
sprang into existence under the 
prudent encouragement of the fac- 
ulty. Parliamentary discussion and 
the drama found many votaries. 
The Stylus, which was founded by 

The Baltimore Window, Library, New Boston College 

giubuturri 3^agf2fi 

the class of 1884, reflected the general culture and work of the students. 

Father Fulton returned as President in 1888. The following year 
an addition was put on the old building to meet the growing needs 
of the college. Attracted by the thorough intellectual and moral 
training received in this institution, the number of scholars was steadily 
increasing. In 1890 there were 290 students in both schools. The 
Boys' Debating Society became known as the Fulton in 1890 and at 
this time inaugurated the practice of public debates. Among the list 
of prize winners we read the names of many men who have become 
a prominent phase of the college life. The dramas produced under 
Professor Willis have received the highest praise from the dramatic 
critics. These years were fruitful in other honors for the college. 
The athletic contests of the 90's ring with nothing but victories for 
Maroon and Gold. Holy Cross and Boston University were no match 
for the sturdy athletes from Boston College, who like Caesar cut 
through forest and impassable ways and chronicled nothing but 
victories in their contests. 

Father Fulton was succeeded by Father Devitt who held the office 
of President from 1891 to 1894. His successor was Father Brosnahan. 
The steady growth of the college made it necessary in 1898 for the 
Young Men's Catholic Association to seek new quarters. In that year 
the combined attendance had swelled to 450. During the period from 
1898 to 1906, under the leadership of Fathers Mullan and Gannon, 
the college was expanding steadily. In 1905 the attendance was proxi- 
mitely 600. 

On the 6th of January, 1907, when Father Gasson assumed the 
presidency of Boston College the new era of expansion began. In the 
past the growth while a healthy and a virile one was at the same time 
a slow one. But the new President, a tireless educator, whose existence, 
energy, and talents are given entirely to the training of youth, inaugur- 
ated new ideas and new methods in the College. Assisted by a 
brilliant corps of professors, every department began to show evidence 
of remarkable growth. In 1909 the Freshman class numbered nearly 
100, which is in striking contrast to 150 in the four classes in 1900. 
The energetic efforts of Mr. Cox, S. J., contributed to the molding of 
the Marquette Debating Society into an excellent club, whose teams 
have won two decisions from outside colleges. Much credit is due the 
same man for the formation of the Knights of the Blessed Sacrament. 
In this society several students are enrolled, and it has for its end 
increased devotion to Christ in Holy Communion. In 1910 the first 
home night was held and it has resulted in forming a closer connec- 
tion between the Alumni and Undergraduates. Intercollegiate debating 

agf2r S>ub3Iurrt 

has become a distinctive feature of college activities within the last 
three years. Athletics have been revived and under suitable instructors 
our teams are among the best in the state. 

This remarkable growth within the small compass of two years 
convinced Father Gasson that the building was fast becoming too small 
for the expansion of the College. Besides, the President had alwaj's 
cherished the idea of separating the College from the High School. 
Accordingly, in 1907 forty acres of land were purchased at Newton. 
The call of Father Gasson for aid was responded to cheerfully by 
thousands. The spontaneous generosity of the Alumni, the Young 
Men's Catholic Association, and the Catholics in genei-al, shows that 
the new project was heartily approved. 

Early in 1908 a contest was started in which several prominent 
architects competed. A prize of one thousand dollars was offered to 
the firm which submitted the best set of plans for the new college. 
The first prize was awarded to Magcnnis and Walsh of Boston. The 
remarkable possibilities of the site instantly fired the artistic imagin- 
ation. It was early decided that the scheme should be a Gothic ,one. 
The plan suggests a mcdia?val cathedral, arranged in longtitudinal and 
transverse axes with the recitation building, surmounted by a Gothic 
tower, the dominating center of the group. The style of architecture 
embodies the historic sentiment of college life. Those who have visited 
Oxford, Bryn Mawr, or Princeton, know the charming academic flavor 
of the collegiate gothic. 

The plans also call for faculty, science and athletic buildings, 
together with a beautiful students' chapel. The campus will occupy 
the east side of the hill with a broad outlook on the reservoir. One 
section has been reserved for a football field and diamond. In another 
part will be the quarter-mile cinder track, and 220-yard stretches for 
dashes. An ideal spot has been selected for the erection of a magnifi- 
cent stadium. 

Since the first spade of earth was turned for the construction of 
the first building the attendance at James Street has been increasing 
in leaps and bounds. In 1911 the catalogue showed that there were 
over one thousand students in the combined schools. During the 
present year it grew larger so that evei-y available place is used to 
accommodate the students. The present enrollment is 363 in College 
— 837 in High School. 

The recitation building is now completed. Situated on a broad 
eminence and flanked by most artistic scenery it stands out tall and 
magnificent. From its class-rooms the most exquisite panorama meets 
the eye. Close at hand is the reservoir skirted on all sides by beautiful 

ubSurrt Pagp2 

shade trees and delightful walks. Off in the distance are the neighbor- 
ing cities of Cambridge and Brookline, and beyond the hazy blue 
outline of the hills which encircle the suburbs. The building itself is 
made of brightened rubble-stone. The Roman arch occupies a con- 
spicuous place in the adornment of the building. In the frequent 
windows of the rotunda the arch is used to perfection. The filigree 
work and delicate tracery on the tower are distinctive features of the 

During the present year Boston College has added another depart- 
ment to its course of instruction. Father Fortier, who came to Boston 
in October, began a number of evening classes. They are open to 
men holding A. B. degrees or to those who have not completed their 
college course. Instruction is given in medical and legal ethics, and 
higher philosophy. Those who complete this course receive an A. M. 
degree. The instruction in the other class embraces a course in schol- 
astic philosophy, and its graduates receive an A. B. degree. 

Today Alma Mater is on the threshold of another half-century 
of existence. Under what auspicious circumstances she begins the 
journey! With her students occupying the beautiful building just 
completed, and surrounded by all the beauties nature could offer, 
the expansion is bound to be a vigorous and healthy one. The fifty 
years which arc over were years of struggles and hardships. The 
location on James Street had necessitated certain restrictions in 
expansion. Lack of facilities and room have retarded the growth 
of the college in the recent past. 

With the completion of the first building at University Heights 
the expansion is bound to be rapid and extensive. On that artistic 
eminence is reared a new citadel of learning, a monument to the cause 
of Catholic education. Here the sons of Catholic parents will learn 
the lessons that will make them better men and better citizens, proud 
of their faith and proud of their country. To her, the class of '13, 
the youngest graduates from the new home, will turn for counsel. 
To Alma Mater we will turn to inspire us to the love of all that is 
high, true, and noble. 

Fittingly indeed may we end this tale of Boston College's past, 
by quoting the simple words which on the informal opening of the 
new college last month thrilled the souls of its Seniors. Never shall 
we forget that scene; we, the proud heirs of the past, led simply into 
the possession of our glorious dwelling by the learned yet humble 
Jesuit by whose untiring efforts this massive pile was erected. He 
led us into the rotunda, gathered us around him, and there with the 

a g p 2 9 

S' ab ®urrt 

warm and brilliant raj's of a welcoming sun streaming down upon 
him like the benediction of God, he said to us : " Gentlemen of the 
Class of 1913: This is a historic moment. We now informally take 
possession of this noble building, which has been erected for the 
greater glory of God — for the spread of the true faith, for the 
cultivation of solid knowledge, for the development of genuine science, 
and for the constant study of those ideals which make for an exalted 
personal uprighteousness and for lofty civic integrity. 

" May this building ever have upon it the special blessing of the 
Most High, may it ever be a cause of joy to the Church and her 
illustrious rulers, a source of spiritual and intellectual strength to the 
faithfid, a protecting bulwark against all foes for the State of which 
we are justly proud, and for the country which we all most ardently

T is with pride tliat wc look upon the ever increasing ranks of our 
Ahnnni. As yet they are comparatively few in number, but what tliey 
lack in this respect they more than make up for in the strength of 
devotion that they have ever manifested towards their Alma Mater. 
They have not grown strong under her sheltering wing and then like 
ungrateful children, turned their backs upon her forever. Not they! 
They have taken all that she had to give and been deeply thankful 
for it. They have watched with anxious eye the days of her weakness; 
they have labored under difficulties, and toiled unceasingly that she 
might grow; and it is only through their efforts that her future has 
been assured. They have made plans, thej^ have wrestled with pro- 
blems that might well prove the grave of a less noble cause, and now 
as a result of it all a majestic building towers in stately splendor at 
the beautiful University Heights. Not satisfied, they have gone a step 
further; they have resolved to raise the huge sum of $100,000 and 
present it to Father Rector on the day of the dedication of the new 
building. Our most esteemed alumnus. His Eminence, William Cardinal 
O'Connell, has blessed their plan, and in behalf of higher Catholic 
education, has seconded his approval by the bountiful gift of $1000. 
They are noble of heart, these members of the Alumni Association 
and of the Boston College Club of Cambridge. Loyal and energetic 
citizens, uprighteous in their dealings with their fellow men, and suc- 
cessful in their chosen fields of activity, they have won the esteem 
of all who know them. Marked by a spirit of progressiveness in behalf 
of the right and a spirit of generosity, they are dear to Boston College. 
And we, the members of this year's Senior Class, who are soon to join 
their ranks, have all their plans at heart and wish them success in all 
that they may undertake. 

''^omt Nig!)t" 

T is everything tliat the words suggest. It is that night of nights, that 
comes but once a year, wlien all the sons of Boston College, who have 
gone out from her portals, return home once more and renew to their 
Alma Mater their pledges of filial devotion. It is the only occasion in 
the year that the three elements of Boston College assemble in friendly 
intercourse; Faculty, alumni, and students are there and all unite to 
make the evening one to be remembered in the annals of the College. 
Class-mates, long separated, meet once more; the Faculty and Alumni 
renew acquaintances; and the new students among the undergraduates 
are given a chance to extend the circle of their friends and thus do 
away with the reticence that is naturally theirs among strangers. Then, 
too, at these " Home Nights " one gets to love Boston College moi-e and 
more: the seeds of loyalty and devotion are scattered broadcast and 
the harvest is shortly forthcoming. 

The entertainment pi-ovided on these occasions for the past two 
years was of the highest type of the humorous. No one, who has 
attended the " first and possibly last " commencement exercises of 
" Notsob College " can forget the merriment that that performance 
gave rise to. Mr. Daniel Gallagher, President " periculo facto " of 
" Notsob College " deserves great credit for his masterly superinten- 
dence of details. Shall we ever forget the whirlwind of laughter that 
greeted his announcement at the last " Home Night ", that " Notsob 
College was finished both substantially and accidentally"? And the 
debate of the "Full-tone Debating Society"! Such eloquence and 
brilliant oratory! Every argument was so " to the point"; tlie debaters 
were clear in their exposition of the question, admonishing the 
audience " to be sure that they got the point well into their heads ", 
and reminding them that the " point at issue was over the heads of 
the women ". And the rebuttal was very "" punc-tilious ", to be sure. 
Each debater was extremely careful to argue only on the question 
and on nothing else; and in this they succeeded — pretty well. 

The wit and humor running through the whole affair was brilliant 
and everybody was delighted. We hope that the success of the affair 
will be duplicated at our next " Home Night ". 

This little account would be indeed incomplete unless was spoken 
a word of praise and appreciation of Mr. Ignatius W. Cox, through 
whose well-directed effort this reorganization of the alumni was begun 
and completed. 

Ci)e BSoston College Clut of Cambritise 

ROM the verj' earliest days in the tale of Boston College, the Catholic 
community of Cambridge has had representation in its student life. 
Year after year, earnest, clear-headed and enthusiastic j^ouths have 
joiu'nej'ed froni the north side of the Charles seeking and finding 
education and moral strength to meet courageouslj^ the difhculties 
of life's pathways. The clergy, the professions of medicine and law, 
the business arena number these students in their ranks, and one of 
these Cambridge boys has had tlie distinctive privilege of serving as 
President of his Alma Mater. The Cambridge contingent, small at 
the beginning, has grown with the growth of the college until in the 
present year of 1913 it comprises almost one-fourth of the entire 
student body. This creditable representation is by no means for- 
tuitous but must be ascribed to the excellence of Boston College in 
the first instance, and then to that rarest of virtues — happily nurtured 
in Cambridge, — ap})reciation. 

In the passage of the years it became more and more evident that 
the bringing together in social and fraternal intercourse, of former 
students ought to result in increasing and lasting benefit to the college 
itself and be a prolific source of satisfaction to all. Some adventitious 
circimistance was needed, however, to serve as an incentive to organ- 
ization, and the decision of the college authorities to begin the 
erection of the new college at "University Heights" answered that 

It is not known who first conceived the idea of the Boston College 
Club of Cambridge. Indeed, the desirability of such an organization 
seems to have been brooding, or rather seething, in the minds of many 
former students, and thus when the call for support in the erection 
of the new Boston College was issued it received a ready response 
from Cambridge. Thereupon the Club was formed in the belief that, 
through its activity, this support might be more effective. 

On April 30, 1908, a meeting was held at St. Mary's Gymnasium at 
which the organization was effected. The By-Laws declare that " the 
object of the Club is to foster in all legitimate and practical ways the 
interests of Boston College." 

The membership is of a two-fold character, — a regular member- 
ship limited to any person of good character who has attended with 
credit one or more courses at Boston College; and an associate mem- 
bership open to any man, approved by the Board of Directors, who 

g>ubJFurrt ^agpBfi 

shows himself to be in favor of the object of the Club, by contributing, 
through the Club, to the Boston College Building Fund. Beginning 
with a membership of fifteen it now numbers on its rolls over one 
hundred and twenty-five men, — sympathizers with the purposes and 
aims of the college. 

Throughout its existence the Club has aimed to keep in active 
touch with its objects. In all movements for the furtherance of the 
college its members have taken an honorable part, and have given 
the strongest evidence of a willingness to assist and encourage. 

On the occasion of the first garden part}' held at the College 
grounds, in June, 1908, shortly after the organization, it was repre- 
resented, and to such an extent that the College treasury was richer 
by $1100.00, that being the largest sum returned by any organization. 
Again, in 1909, the Club led all competitors by a net return of $950.00, 
and in 1910, its members had the privilege and pleasure of transmitting 
$1050.00. In 1911 and 1912, substantial amounts have likewise been 
sent to the College treasury. 

In the belief that the literary and dramatic features of Boston 
College were worthy of particular notice, the Club has always dis- 
plaj^ed a sjiecial interest in the Shakespearean plays at the College. 
The pi'oduction of " Hamlet " in 1909 was so noteworthy that a request 
was made to Father Gasson to allow its presentation in Cambridge. 
This request being granted, for the first time in the history of Boston 
College, her students were permitted an opportunity to show their 
histrionic abilities outside of the College stage. Aquinas Hall in Cam- 
bridge, the largest auditorium in the cit}^ was placed at the disposal 
of the Club, and an audience which taxed its capacity favored the 
young players. 

The success of this effort prompted another request to the 
authorities in 1910, when " The Merchant of Venice " was most success- 
fully presented. Through these opportunities the people of Cain- 
bridge became educated to a belief in the capacity and ability of 
Boston College students, and it is confidently anticipated that much 
interest has been aroused in College affairs. 

In all its undertakings, social or financial, the Club has been 
assisted by the many ladies whom it has been privileged to include 
among its most earnest supporters. Each recurring call upon them 
for support has seemed to only increase their splendid enthusiasm, 
and no small part of the Club's success depends upon their cooperation 
and efforts. 

This, in brief, is the story of the Cambridge Club. Conceived in 
a desire to assist Alma Mater, it has not forgotten its purpose. May 
it not long be alone among Boston College district organizations for 
the purpose of aiding " in all legitimate and practical ways the 
interests of Boston College."

Marquette (i, 2) Fulton (3, 4) 

It gives us great pleasure, gentle 
reader, to introduce to you our dear 
friend and classmate, Edmund Russell 
alias Aloysius Boucher. This name 
was added by our Psychology Pi-of, 
despite Ed's opposition to Latin text- 
book, which opposition succumbed 
finally to certain " a Fortieri " argu- 
ments. Ed takes particular pleas- 
ure in art; this predilection was not 
inborn in him but originated rather 
precipitately. One morning he made 
the acquaintance of a fair student of the Normal Art School, who claims 
to have come originally from Hingham; and ever since Ed has seen 
fit to act in the capacity of critic of her paintings. Ed is also somewhat 
of a connoisseur of architecture and claims that in Boston there are 
no better examples of beautiful architecture than the annex to the 
Girls' High School, the Franklin Square House, and the Posse Gym- 
nasium. These he pauses frequently to admire and comment at length 
on their intrinsic beauties. He has likewise dabbled in 
literature, being the author of a very interesting work 
entitled " A Vision in Blue," or " The Mysterious Lady from 
Fitchburg," a romance in which we are prone to believe 
Ed himself has played the leading role. We make no 
prediction as to Ed's future — we leave that to the Class 
Prophet — but we have our own opinion, based on Ed's 
many and wistful glances at the august buildings on 
Lake St., Brighton.

Look not, or critics, witli disdain 
upon these benign I'eatures for 
Freddie is not as simple as he looks! 
The childlike innocence, which you 
note playing about his features, is 
onh^ assumed for more reasons than 
one. In reality, however, he is the 
real live wire of the class. We first 
gazed upon Fred's saintly counten- 
ance at the beginning of the second 
term of Junior year. Prior to that 
time Fred had pulled through Holy 
Cross where he intended finishing with "magna cum laude " 
honors had he had control over his stomach. Alas! that jiart of 
" Brad's " anatonry failed to work in harmony with the cranium. Hence 
our daily glimpses of " Kink's " aforesaid phj'siognomy. " Glimpses " 
is right, as Fred barelj' comes in during Ethics, sits in the 
last row in Psychology, in the first seat in Astronomy, and 
then disappears. Fred's specialties are numerous and char- 
acteristic. His list of specialties being too lengthy, we can 
only mention the most prominent. Chief among these are 
his love (?) desire (? ?) and joj' ('? ? ?) in mental work of 
the most abstract and philosophical kind, as proved by his 
serious expression and the number of text-books carried at 
all times but generally on entering the class-room in the 
morning. That Fred is a shark in Astronomj^ goes without 
saying. His " quick and correct " answers in this line prove 
our assertion. As sub-president, F. W. Brady is without a 
peer. Truly another Solomon ! Incidentally it is partly due 
to him that this arduous undertaking of ours came to be 
realized. Concluding this epitaph, let us add that outside 
these good qualities, " Kink " has the extreme defect of being 
a jolly good fellow.

Winning a scholarship to B. C, Tom 
entered upon his march tlirougli col- 
lege fresh from the classical atmos- 
phere of Boston Latin School, nor has 
the atmosphere been entirely dissi- 
pated during his presence here. As 
a Freshman he helped Davis of Lynn 
to pitcli his famous no-hit, no-run 
game by striking out three times. But the field, on which he preferred 
to shine was not that of the diamond, but of the rostrum, always holding 
a prominent place in our debating societies, especially during his 
Sophomore year. His rhetoric teacher once advised him to recite all 
his speeches to his cook before giving them in public, and if they were 
plain to her, he need have no fear of his audience not understanding 
him. To his vigorous application to this rule — much to the discom- 
fiture of the cook — do we attribute 
the simplicity and clearness of his 
speeches. During his Junior year he 
planted the seed for a Progressive 
party — long before Roosevelt ever 
dreamt of it — but it was either poor 
farming on his part, or else an off- 
year on his particular product. 
Though nursed and guarded by him 
for some time, his seed never ripened 
into the beautiful plant which he had 
hoped to make it. He was an active 
member in class affairs, and his 
fellow-classmates wish him success in 
whatsoever field of endeavor he may 
choose to enter.

page before liaving read of a friend- 
ship tliat obscures the friendship of 
David and Jonatlian as the sun out- 
sliines the stars. The ditty at the 
head of this page expresses the uni-

Burke, our present subject, and 
Thomas L. Gannon. Cicero would 
have written a better " De Amicitia " could he have observed the daily 
chats between these two in class. And such chats! Indeed, so soulful 
and hearty are they that many a time and oft have they called forth 
the professors' ire. Hush! It has even been whispered that they have 
on a few occasions been mistaken for the Siamese twins ! 
Another of Frank's characteristics is his business ability. In 
those college activities in which he was interested he has been 
largely successful. Credit is especially due to him for his 
work as baseball manager. A better schedule than this year's 
schedule is hard to find, considering the dithculties which had 
to be overcome. His work as chairman of the Intercollegiate 
Debating Committee is also very worthy of praise. Frank 
is known as a " hustler." Always on the jump, he may be 
often seen with a reporter's notebook in hand and scribbling 
away. As press-agent he has more than done his share in 
putting B. C. on the map. We, his classmates, are all confident 
and hope that he will hit his mark.

Bill is a living proof of the fact that 
one does not have to be noisj% boister- 
ous, or a politician to be popular with 
the boys to the extent of being made 
Class Secretary — a position requir- 
ing much vigilance and care. His 
life here has been placid and " far 
from the maddening crowd's ignoble 
strife." He never troubled trouble till 
trouble troubled him — but this j^ear 
the class drew him from his solitude 
— with absolutely no solicitation on 
his part, and thrust upon his shoulder 
the activities and worries of an official position. Besides this. Bill has 
the qualities of a good student as offered to our contemplation in 
their ideal perfection in the person of Doc Phelan, but not to the same 
extent as our Beadle. He does absolutely everything in the line of study 
and such a distinction deserves special notice in this year-book. He 
enjoys the reputation of being the only Secretary who has not been 
obliged to change his minutes after submitting them to the class for 
approval. One reason we could advance for this phenomenon is our 
confidence in the correctness and accuracy of the same. Another is 
that the class has been too busy to bother about them at all — being 
more interested in what the Future holds for us than 
what the Past has handed us. Bill's motto seems to 
be, " I meddle with no man's business but my own " — 
a very good one, as the class's giving into his 
hands the records of its business, proves. Still our 
advice to Bill is to make a little more noise .

He is a favorite with Fr. Cusick, who not seldom delays in the middle 
of an explanation to send Tom on various errands to Fr. Green. The 
reason for Tom's presence in the remaining 
classes is not yet quite clear to the editors. 
But in the study of Ethics Tom is " there." 
We don't exactly know why Fr. Brett

because Tom was inculcating " sotto voce "

Newport, R. I., was put on the map 
when on the second day of June in 
the year 1891, John Patrick Curley, 
artist and literary genius, made his 
debut into this world of trouble. John 
is an artist by nature, as we have it 
from good authority that the first 
thing he did was to draw his breath, 
and since then he has been equally 
successful in drawing cartoons and 
the attention of the ladies. He first 
came into prominence as a litterateur 
when his beautiful poem on " Autumn " appeared in the Stijhis in his 
Freshman year. He still keeps up his literarj' work as one of the 
editors of the Stylus, and is now contemplating writing a book, the title 
of which is " Study as a Minor Part of a College Course," a subject with 
which he is very well acquainted and to which he can do great justice. 
Though laying no claim to be an athlete (a thing which we may 
attribute to his modest and retiring nature) John is the undisputed 
golf champion of the class and could easily find a berth upon the 
Varsity baseball team were his other duties less 
pressing. As manager of the Varsitj^ football 
he showed great executive ability. John 
leaning toward astronomy and it is rumorc 
during the coming summer he will spend much of 
his time in Utica in order that he may the more 
easily observe the Mars. John is one man in the 
class before whom we can see several most success- 
ful futures. He is a Newton Newkirk, as some of 
our write-ups show; a Joe Welch, as our memories 
recall, and a Bud Fisher, as ovir cartoons testify, 
combined, and yet we understand he is going to 
follow up neither of these talents. His success as 
an advertising man has led him to believe he has 
business abilities — so the best of luck to him!

mits a propensity for athletics, sur- 
passed only by that for oratory and 
Italian, which latter is, incidentally, 
" some propensity." He is also on in- 
timate terms with Shakespeare and 
secured special permission from the 
author, (in a " Midsunnner Night's Dream") to play the role of 
Macduff in the 1912 production of Macbeth. If you would spend a 
quiet evening with Jim, you might get him started on " The Value

then — " lend him your ears." You may get them back at the

ever again be able to understand English. Many 
reasons are ascribed for Jim's all-consuming 
devotion to this study. Some assert that he wants 
the Italian vote when he runs for Governor, and 
some do not hesitate to hint that a dark-eyed, 
olive-skinned signorina from sunny Italy is at the 
bottom of it all. But ones who believe " nil sine

planation of his zeal in the belief that next 
summer will find him going to roam. It seems, 
however, that the question must remain unsolved 
for the immediate present, for Jim only smiles 
mysteriously, with a far-away look in his eyes, 
when you ask him the. wherefore.

To Matt belongs the unusual dis- 
tinction of being twice president of 
his class, occupying the chair during 
our Sophomore and Junior years. His 
best known characteristic is his will- 
ingness to work for any class activity. 
This was made evident in our Fresh- 
man j^ear, when his work on behalf 
of the Garden Party was a very con- 
tributorj' factor to its success. Matt 
did not come to us unheralded, for 
we had heard of his baskell)all fame, so that he captained the Fresh- 
man squad, and led the Varsity team. Besides, as a member of the 
backfield of the 1911 football team he played a steady game. To 
mention Matt's athletic activities, without saj'ing a word about his 
social success, would be doing him an injustice; but, lack of ample 
space forbids anything Init the mere chronological record of his leader- 
ship of the Sophomore Dance and Junior Promenade, which he 
led with the grace of a finished leader of cotillions. Matt is a 
good manager, in business! He had obtained such experience 
before entering college, that he knew every business " scheme "

Jim is another one of that band of 
Seniors that our genial Ethics pro- 
fessors " discovered " and brought 
out. Too long had he hidden his light 
— giving us in other j'ears but a pass- 
ing flash and then relapsing again 
into oblivion. One cannot long en- 
gage with him in conversation with- 
out finding his remarks interspersed 
with browsings from Milton — or 
some virtue extolled in words that 
Shakespoke. James will inform any- 
one who asks him what his main oc- 
cupation is here, that he is pursuing 
his studies — but he hastens to explain that that doesn't mean that he 
is far behind them. The other diversion that J. E. F. pursues is one of 
even a more elevated nature, in fact he has always shown considerable 
interest in uplift work of many kinds. In connection with this study 
he attends regularly a course at *x x x x x x (see footnote). There 
seems to be a propensity on the part of a certain number of fellows 
to try to jolly Fihelly, but Jim may 
always keep this book as documentary 
evidence to prove that it is an easy matter 
to tell who is the better jollier. His motto 
is, " What you get for nothing, take, my 
boy." We know of no scandal in Jim's 
young life other than his going to Chick- 
ering's piano factory to get his picture

Way back in Freshman " Doc " 
distinguished himself by scoring the 
only touchdown in the Sophomore- 
Freshman game and rather enjoying 
tlie glare of the spot light, he has 
managed to keep himself before the 
public ever since. As basketball man- 
ager in Sophomore he won the 
"stomachs" of the squad by his gen- 
erous disbursement of the funds — 
of the college. As vice-president of 
the Marquette he developed ability as " an arguer." The only way his 
arguments can be made to cease to flow is by tying his hands. 
Not content with shining in the eyes of such a limited audience as 
society and class offered, he mcteored himself into the histrionic heavens 
by assuming the part of the " Doctor " in "Macbeth." The performance 
gave rise to a class debate on the question as to whether that part was 
intended by Shakespeare to be as meniorable in the minds of the 
audience as " Doc's " rendition of it made it. It was Curley's contention 
that it was Shakespeare's one " Homeric hod " — to introduce comedy 
in such a tragic scene. Other Shakespearian authorities in 
the class question the propriety of the fanrous " Turkey Trot 
exits " featured bj' the Doctor — who, however, defends his 
modern interpolation on the ground that the references made 
by Shakespeare to " chickens " and " dames " demanded it. 
It wasn't till Senior, however, that " Doc " came into his 
own — when by an overwhelming vote he was swept into the 
vice-presidential chair — there to rule with unruffled dignity 
— whenever the fellows could be made quiet enough to listen 
to him and were not attracted to another corner of the room 
by another competing presiding officer.

Worcester was heralded to the 
world when the famous Irish national 
bird deposited its onerous impedi- 
menta there March 19, 1890, in the 
person of " Stretch "; in 
his early days he mani- 
fiested a love and zeal 
for an intellectual at- 
mosphere, consequentl}' 
his folks vacated the 
above town in order 
that he might better 
the advantages offered 

by the Athens of America to this genius in embryo. 
Roxbury soon heard of him when he blossomed in the 
Mission School; after preparing himself there, he won 
a scholarship in the B. C. H. During this time of 
intellectual stretching and expansion, his physical 
powers were not dormant, for he assumed such a 
length that he sleeps in a specially made bed with his 
" pedes extra fenestras." After matriculation at 
B. C. H., he entered the College proper. He spends 
his summer leisure in the capacity of book-agent; the 
most disappointing of all employments is that of a 
book-agent, yet Joe made good there, which argues 
well for his future adventures and subsequent success. 
Fitz is an ardent enthusiast of scientific chemistry; 
not satisfied with the extensive facilities for this 
branch of science extended by the College, he may be 
found delving into the mysteries of the science of smells 
and bottle-washing at the Franklin Institute three or 
more evenings a week. At this institution he has made 
himself known and respected on account of his well 
correlated knowledge of the theory and practice of 
chemistry; he is at his best when delivering a well- 
prepared treatise on the " Synthesis of Rubber.".]

Tom was rolled upon the shores of 
Orient Heights on the 4th of Januarj% 
1890. His earl}' education was re- 
ceived in that district, but since he 
entered Boston Latin School in 1905 
he has been making daily voyages 
across to Boston to increase and com- 
plete his intellectual training. He en- 
tered Boston College in September, 
1909, and has never missed a single 
day since. In all kinds of weather he 
makes that perilous voyage over the 
harbor. Tom is the most optimistic 
fellow in the class. His philosophy is to keep on smiling regardless of 
how much it hurts. Every tinie you look at him he is wreathed in 
smiles. Whether engaged in a recitation on the norm of morality or 
the origin of ideas, a merry smile is playing upon his countenance. 
In conversation he readily wins both professors and classmates to his 
side by his magnetizing smile. His success as a debater is no less 
attributed to his ability to smile and make others smile. Tom thinks 
that he was placed in this world to be a school teacher. If he follows 
that profession he is sure of attaining success, for in addition to his 
optimism he is endowed with a copious supplj' of knowledge. We 
can assure his pupils a much happier existence than 
the pupils of Dotheboys Hall enjoyed under its 
master, Squeers. His bright and sunny disposition 
has won him the friendship of all his classmates and 
it will be sure to help him on to success in years 
to come.

Tom was born in South Boston and

residence in tlie peninsula district was 
not of sutficient duration to make him 
proficient in Gaelic, but those years in 
the North End have stood him in good' 
stead in the studj' of Italian. An epi- 
curean taste, satiated with macaroni 
and bananas, gained for him six feet 
of brawn and an infinite capacity of 
])rain. Tom has had a somewhat 
checkered career; naturally solicitous 
for suffering humanity he became, when still a youth, a member of 
the St. Vincent de Paul Society and did a great amount of good in 
and around Boston. Just ask him to tell a few stories and he'll keep 
going until daylight, recounting his experiences as a charity worker. 
Ask him about the old days at B. C. those were the happy days! 
Then it was that Tom was a star of the first magnitude. In '02 and '03 
he played tackle on the Varsity football team, and has the distinction 
of being a member of the only crew B. C. ever had — which, however, 
did not compete. And some say that he was somewhat of an actor; 
took the part of a tent-pole in 
Julius Caesar. But softly now! 
Sweet music ! If you would

the Golden Anniversary Class, well 
able to direct and lead it in its activi-

our class points to its president on 
all of his numerous public appear-

his debating, and in this line, for which he seems to have a special pre- 
dilection, he has been more frec£uently in the public eye, we believe, 
than any other B. C. debater in our memorj\ 
The Fulton victories of 1911 over Georgetown 
and Fordham are attributed in great part to the 
shafts of his wit — the direct forcefulness of his 
argumentation and his matter-of-fact, drive-it-

No one believes that Tom's conquests in his 
chosen field of argumentation and law, will 
cease with his college course. Each of his class- 
mates and fellow-collegians expects to see him 
shine and lead in the broader field of profes- 
sional life, whether legal or political, as he has 
in the limited sphere of our college life. He has 
another circle of admirers in the Stylus readers. 
His contributions to the College paper have been 
consistent, eagerly read, and of such high 
literary merit that we have selected several of 
his shorter poems to embellish our book. His 
editorials have been a means of uniting the

Sutiice it to say that Joe is of an 
exceedingly estlietic temperament; he 
loves heauty in any of its forms. We 
have seen him pick up Horace's " O 
Pons Bandusiae " and become enrap- 
tured; we have seen him sit for hours 
enlhralled by the eloquence of De- 
mosthenes; and we have watched his 
countenance glow and his eyes shine 
as he listened to the exposition of 
the beauties of the physical world — 
in so far as we were introduced to 
them in our course in Physics. But Joe's proper element is Music. 
They tell us that Joe had hardly, for the first time, opened his eyes to 
the light of day, when he broke forth into a song, the like of which has 
never since been heard in Newton. He reijeated his performance at 
frequent intervals thereafter, and neighbors used to lie awake, even 
into the small hours of the morning, charmed by this infant prodigy. 
But it was only recently that he gave his inclination to music a practical 
turn and conferred one of the greatest blessings on humanity, by 
founding the College Glee Club. He was in the field in Medford one 
day with a geological party when a melodious , 

soprano voice filled the air with a beautiful 
song; and ever since, rain or shine, Joe has 
been scouring the hills and dales of Medford 
in search of unconformities.

Associate Editor Sub Turri (4) Class Prophet 

September of 1909 brought us this 
retiring young man from Newton, and 
even after a trying career of four 
years in our company he still retains 
that quality of retiring, generally 
after the third hour once or twice a 
week. All seem to agree that the 
scene of his actions during these 
.stolen moments lies in the richest 
town in this country. Some say the 
time is spent in locating a favorable 
site for a new provision establish- 
ment; others say in visiting a few pro- 
spective customers. However, as to the exact reason, time will tell. 
Rut from this account one must not get the idea that Tom is of a 
frivolous nature — far from it. As a student he ranks among the 
leaders; while as a literateur, his name and fame are known from the 
Atlantic to the Pacific, from Canada to Mexico, for he is the exchange 
editor of the Stylus and the able manner in which he has raised that 
position to one of importance is most creditable. His reputation as 
an actor is closely linked with his reputation as champion biscuit-eater 
in the tavern scene of Henry IV. As an accomplished 
member it is apparent that Thomas finds his place 
among the first; so accomplished, indeed, is he, that to 
get an idea of the Newtonite's future hopes is an 
impossibility. Still we know he will make himself 
known and appreciated in whatever path he chooses, 
and so our hand goes out to him in his next move.

" Jack " is without a doubt our most 
versatile athlete, playing varsitj' foot- 
ball and baseball and class track con- 
sistently and well. During his Senior 
year he expecially distinguished him- 
self by the sterling chai'acter of his 
playing of right end on the Varsity 
football team, of which he was cap- 
tain. One of Jack's best assets is his 
well-known tenacity of purpose. He 
never starts anything that he can't 
finish and that he doesn't finish. By this let no one misunderstand us 
to say that Jack never starts anything, for as a disturber of the peace, 
and a menace to the beaux brummels of the room, he is surpassed only 
by Walter Flynn and (nis McMahon, who contain in themselves the 
very essence of mischief. That Jack has never entered oratoricals is 
a great mystery to his South Boston admirers — and the only reason 
that we can ascribe is that too much of his time is required to fulfil his 
temperance lecture engagements. The football team and 
the citizens of Willimantic bear testimony to his forensic 
abilities. On Soph Class Night he was called upon as 
a speaker and though entirely unprepared entertained 
us all with experiences on his football trips. Jack, j^ou 
know, isn't a man that would push himself at all, but 
once pushed he's a hard man to stop. Jack's practice 
on the organ is limited, not in proficiency but merelj^ in 
time and tune, to the Physics hour.

After imbibing all the knowledge to

of 1913 late in September, 1909. Dur- 
ing his Freshman year Irvin was a 
source of constant enjojanent for the 
class in Elocution by his clever imper- 
sonations of local political celebrities 
and A\'as noted for tlie verbositj' of his 
remarks before the Marquette Debat- 
ing Society, of which he was a leading 
member. Until his Junior year Irvin 
had enjoyed the fullest esteem and 
admiration of his fellows, and the horror with which they received the 
terrible news that Irvin not only had removed to Chelsea but even 
pretended to take pleasure in this living entombment, can hardly be 
described. For his indefatigable labors on behalf not only of the College 
Track Team, of which he was manager, but also of every athletic 
activity at the college, Irvin deserves the greatest credit, and it was 
through his cfl'orts that the first swimming team in the histor}^ of the 
institution was organized. He also was a prime mover in the indoor 
tennis revival, being the winner in the singles and a 
member of the successful team in the doubles event. Irvin 
intends to follow Chem., and we have no hesitation in 
predicting a success.

tinguished on the occasion of his first and last appearance 
on the gridiron, Ray, besides being one of the class beauties, 
is always good company and is in much demand on account 
of liis ability as a singer and piano plaj'^er, and taken all 
in all he is some " little " entertainer. His voice has also 
been heard with telling effect in the Marquette and Fulton, 
and almost in this year's College Shakespearean production 
of Macbeth. Being tried out in a minor part, he read his 
lines with such remarkable intelligence of feeling that he 
was urged by experts to essay the role of Lady Macbeth. 
He essayed, but found his talents better suited to lighter 
parts and resolved to stick to Somerville dramatics. His 
most lasting work will be found in the last twenty pages of

he exhibited that this new class " undertaking " did not

After one year of Vincent, Aquinas 
College of Cambridge, Mass., closed

years here the result has been a re- 
moval to Newton. His first act of 
prominence as a collegian was the 
winning of the Marquette Debating 
Society Medal in his Freshman j'ear. 
In his Sophomore year Vincent, play- 
ing the important part of Portia in 
the College dramatics, earned much 
praise by his clever portrayal of this 
ditlicult role. Besides his success as a Thespian, his baritone voice has 
added to the volume, at least, if not to the melody of the songs of the 
Glee Club. During his early years here Vincent experienced much 
difficulty in arriving at College on time on account of the poor service 
between Cambridge and this city, and we understand that the Subway 
is a direct consequence of his work in regard to the solving of the delays 
in transit. In his Junior year Vincent played right field for the Phi 
Alpha Club, and in the game with Delta Kappa made the feature play, 
making a diving stop of a liner while running at full speed, spoiling 
a certain home run (and a good pair of trousers) and pulling his team 
out of a bad hole. A jealous rival, the center fielder on the same team, 
claims that the greatness accruing to Vincent from this catch was 
thrust upon him, as at the psychological moment Vincent tripped, 
introducing a novel departure in baseball — viz., stopping the ball by 
sitting on it.

It was in primary school tliat 
James's leaning to poetry first evi- 
denced itself. It was while doing 
nothing one day — which, bj' the 
way, was then his favorite pastime, 
that an inspiration came to him and 
he wrote his first verse, on " How to 
make money withont working for it." 
He was heralded thenceforward as a 
modern Homer. When later he en- 
tered Holy Cross, the whole stndent 
l>ody looked at him in awe, for his 
reputation as a poet had preceded 
him. He was immediately signed 
upon the Purple staff' and all looked 
forward to its first pul)lication which appeared 
October 4, 1910. Five hundred copies were sold — but 
for some reason, the second month onlj^ six were sold 
(Jim himself buying the six to send home). It seems 
then that some one convinced Jim that Harvard pre- 
sented greater opportunities to a man of his genius, and 
he entered there. A very short while, however, sufficed 
to show him his error, and he got off the car at Newton 
Street instead of Harvard Square. But in all serious-

persuasive tones of which John is full master. Built on Websterian 
lines even to the parting of his hair, one easily detects all the other 
likenesses, only John has this advantage, that unlike the great 
Daniel, he spoke his first speech with brilliant success and was 
henceforth hailed as a " comer." But woe to the man who en- 
gages John's two-edged sword of sarcasm. We have tried it and 
we know. Our sympathy goes out to those future malefactors 
of wealth and tariff proteges who will soon become the butt 
of John's attack, for he is their avowed enemy and the cham- 
pion of the " peepul." Railroads beware, for soon you are to learn

From Sophomore up to this last

ways been brightened by " Guies-

How, why and whence Joe has ac- 
quired this now famous appellation 
" Guieseppe " remains as a matter of 
study and research for the philolo- 
gists of coming genei'ations. We 
tiiink that it may have an extrinsic 
or intrinsic dependence upon the fact 
of our perfect (?) knowledge of Ital- 
ian and of Joe's intimate connection 
\\'ith the recent scene of the I. W. W. 
uprising, for Lawrence, Mass., is 
known as Joseph's home town. Mr Mahoney, as he is sometimes 
called, has, so we have heard, the capacity and tendency for being a 
senator. This noble aspiration of his was revealed at the February 
hearing in favor of a reduction of students' railroad rates before the 
railroad committee in the State House. Before this eminent body, 
Mr. Mahonej^ spoke with such thrilling eloquence that it is whispered 
that students' rates will be halved. Joe's other occupation after school 
and study hours is tliat of chauffeur and so we have 
a right to conclude that some time in the future we maj^ 
hear of Mr. Joseph Mahoney, U. S. Senator, or of " Dare- 
devil Joe," the 100 mile an hour auto fiend. So here's 
success to him in any walk of life ! ! !

Behold our only other representa- 
tive of "Little Rhody"! Verily that 
little state has in Frank Mangan a 
worthy little Napoleon to reiiresent 
it. Francis hangs up his coat in 
Pawtucket, R. I., and makes the run 
thence daily, for which, methinks, 
great praise is due him. For such a 
great distance a very early rising is 
necessary, something metaphysically 
impossible for more than one of our 
suburban class-mates. This fact 
proves Frank to be a little bear for 
work, although suspicion is aroused 
by his leaving at twelve-thirty. The 

reason for the suspicion? Because we know Mr. Mangan to be a great 

friend with the ladies as on one occasion he was seen with several 

persons of the other sex. Moral : beware of Frank, all ye who are on 

speaking terms with Dan Cupid! 

At one fime in Soph Class, he brightened the Physics hour by publish- 
ing a daily paper — which may be 

said to have been the seeds of a 

class book. 
Furthermore, as a wit there are few 

in the class who can equal him — 

and for this reason it is a delight to 

listen to his debates — and it has been 

noticed that the attendance of the

Frank is now putting all his efforts ■

Chemistry with the probable inten- 
tions of specializing therein. This is, 

however, a mere guess. Whatever his

will attain his goal ! ! !

It was not until Senior year that 
there slipped quietly into our ranks 
a certain party by the name of Geo. 
E. Marin. A shy glance at his age on 
his application blank told us we were 
about to receive the Class Baby — 
Init he turned out to be a baby in 
years only. His quiet, retiring ways 
— as he never deigned to open his 
lips except to solve for us quickh^ and 
surely, the most abstruse points in 
our Ethics — left him for some time 
an unknown quantity. Unknown, but 
not unobserved or unstudied, for how 
could the suspecting eye of one (or 
two or three or ten) keeping class honors in mind, fail to discover 
this new intellectual meteor. Then the question arose, and was quite 
openly mooted, "Is he smart or just a plugger? " As if he knew our 
thoughts, he unconsciously and in the simplest possible way, 
solved the question straightway himself, 
by shattering one horn of the dilemma. 
He showed that he didn't devote his time 
to lessons alone, by plunging into the 
arduous undertaking of the class — and 
at a time when prospects were dullest, 
and by making good there too, he clearly 
showed that the other horn of the di- 
lemma was the only possible solution. 
Therefore — or to quote a well-beloved 
professor — hence our argument con- 
cludes thus: he is a very smart young 
man. We, his classmates, heartilj^ com- 
mend him to the world in general.

Another of the illustrious sons of 
St. Peter's parish of Dorchester, which 
has brought so much renown to B. C. ! 
From the very start he displayed 
great promise and diligence — in ath- 
letics. He has ever shone brilliantly 
at baseball and football, but his in- 
inability to get down to weight kept 
him out of track athletics. His great- 
est laurels, however, are those which 
he has acquired in the bowling alley. 
In his Junior year he easily showed 
his right to the title of " Mattapan 
Champion." Incidentally he still retains his unblemished honors. 
Among his classmates " Buster " has always been a general favorite. 
Big-hearted and easy-going, the good-natured butt of the jokes of both 
classmates and professors, he has more friends in the College 
than many of the leading actors in college life. His calm 
and even tenor of life has successfully defied the attempts 
of the professors to " bawl him out " and as a result, those 
who begin to roar at him like a lion usually conclude as 
meekly as a lamb. If he can still retain this wonderful 
power of self-control he has a brilliant future before him 
— as a hen-pecked husband. When preferring not to recite 
his lessons in psychology for reason externally evident, he 
calmly suggests a note of 80 — which the class voted to give 
him, but the sanction of the beadle not being forthcoming, 
he got a naught of 80. Cross-questioning by our Ethics pro- 
fessor brought out the fact that all his actions spring from 
the highest kind of motives — no act of any kind ever being 
placed without a positive previous act of pure love of God.

Upon entering College Barney was 
the modest possessor of the title of 
being the original and only bona fide 
nero man in the class. For one cold, 
wintry morn way back in 1909 the 
papers chronicled the thrilling rescue 
of a young skater of Newton Lower 
Falls from an icy grave, by an un- 
known, whom investigation proved to 
be a certain 0. J. McGalligan of Bos- 
ton College. Modesty and retirement 
iiavc always been noticeable charac- 
teristics of Owen and " serve as a 
candle to his worth." Tiiat artistic talent that we now all know so well, 
found its first lasting expression in the designing of the Golden Anni- 
versai'y Seal of Boston College, which has been adojited as the seal 
of the Class of 1913. To Owen must also be given the credit for the 
cover design and name of our Year-Book, " Sub Turri." Many were 
the titles suggested, but none seemed to possess the dignity, appropriate- 
ness and originalitj' which characterizes the unanimous 
choice of the Committee. Always a quiet, industrious 
worker, his efforts to promote the interests of his class 
had good results especially in the success of our Junior 
Prom, held in our year for the first time in the Hotel 
Somerset. As an orator his first and last appearance 
before us will not be soon forgotten. At any rate, he 
was the only speaker on that eventful day who was 
mindful of some interested spectators of that wildly 
interesting session, from across the way.

Augustus Michael McMahon, the

esteemed president saw fit to confer 
the title of " Sage of Wilmington," 
was born in that town, June 15, 
1891, and there received his Gram- 
mar and High School education. As 
the poet Gray says, he has " pursued 
the even tenor of his way," joyfullj' 
and gladly cooperating with the class 
in its ventures and lending his assist- 
ance wheresoever needed. His broad 
knowledge of rural life, gained by experience, makes him a valuable 
source of information on all such topics. He is a member of the Glee 
Club where he sings to kill the time, and according to the concensus of 
opinion he has a good weapon. As a heart smasher we believe Gus holds 
a record. This deduction is, however, a very good example 
of a priori reasoning, viz., given the cause, the effect must result. We 
do not reach this conclusion from any multitude of cases observed. 
Aside from his charm of manner — which we can readily see attracts 
femininity to him, it is his utter indifference to them that we believe 
makes them try the harder to ensnare this prize. 

" Gus," as he is familiarly called, is a favorite among his com- 
panions, and his genial and pleasing disposition makes for him a host 
of friends. We regret the parting of the ways 
which separates us from Gus, and trust that the 
golden milestones of his future life may lead 
ever through fields of happiness and joy.

Although 110 holiday has j'et been 
(lechired because of the fact, Joseph 
F. Moloney first saw the light of day 
on the second day of March, 1890. 
The early days of his life were passed 
playing in the historic parks of South 
Boston, and wading through the 
studies in the elementary schools of 
the peninsula district, to which Joe 
bade adiew before he graduated to 
enter the ancient and honorable Bos- 
Ion Latin School. Here from the 
start he rapidly ascended the ladder of fame. He soon became a 
corporal in the school battalion — next a first sergeant-major, and 
finally wore the stripes of regimental sergeant-major. 
But military drill did not aflord all the laurels won by 
Joe; he was some athlete, finding a position on several 
all-scholastic elevens. Nor were all his efforts confined 
to playing games, for he served on the Athletic Advisory 
Board of that school as the student member. On 
entering college, Joe, for a high motive banished his 
ideas of fame as an athlete and turned to more serious 
pursuits. Joe is rather out of the class of the rest of us — 
in looks and in artistic sense — but we will excuse that, 
he's so young. In the social affairs of the College he has 
been some " traveler," quoting Newman as his authority 
for the importance of sociability in college life.

Frank was a little late for the 
fourth, in fact, he seems to be late 
in very many things, but when he 
does come we all are aware of it, for 
he lias a way that is all his own. We 
know what Frank means though, in 
fact oftentimes he has been found 
mean enough for anything, as many 
of our number can testify who have 
come in contact with his terrible 
right. His one fault is that he is 
quite talkative in class and is perhaps 
the most garrulous chap in our midst. 
For three seasons " Murph " has been a steady player on the diamond 
for the Maroon and Gold, and has always been quite handy with the 
hickory. The official scorer never had the opportunity to make mistakes 
about Frank's average, for his devoted pupil, imitator, and admirer, 
" Kid " Donovan always had it computed. Unfortunately his pitching 
records were lost in oblivion while returning from the spring training 
trip in Northern Vermont, but everybody says that his shoots can be 
hit farther than " Smoky Joe's," and the upstate natives 
especiallj' have never been known to deny it. From his 
frequent and learned disputations on " Hash " during 
the psychology hour, we had begun to think that Frank 
had found a new brand of " sinkers " in a nearby 
restaurant, that could give us more pleasant dreams 
and memories; but we were doomed to disappointment, ^^- -. 

for soon we found that instead of treating of this most &^^^S>^\ 
elevating subject, be was merely talking of such com- 
monplace things as chemistry and pharmacy (farmacy) 
and of course our interest immediately began to lag. 
The future augurs nothing but good for Francis in his 
chosen profession.

In the fall of 1909, two young fel-

name of the street, or else there must 
have been a particular attraction 
elsewhere, for we found them hope- 
lessly wandering around Newton St., 
on that first memorable day in Sep-

becoine a " white hope," and in great wonder and admiration did we 
watch him go through his stunts with the punching-bag. He was 
really good at this, and his one fault was a mere 
lack of discretion. He broke the bladder so much 
that the prefect of discipline came to know him, 
and this is something to be avoided. In our 
interclass meet " Jim " gained undying fame for his 
powers in the high jump — we did not win the meet,

In looking over his gifts remaining

delivered in Quincy, which one he

according to Dame Rumor, do we 
account for Bennett Joseph O'Brien, 
known as the " Ty Cobb " of Boston 
College, who was born in Quincy, on 
December 26, 1891. He received his 
earl3' education in that town, and be- 
ing graduated from the Quincy High 
School, in 19(19. he entered Boston College the same year. It is said that 
during his baby days he was a great boy for catching flies, and possibly 
to this early training we can attribute his brilliant performances on 
the diamond during his college days, upon which he has alwa^^s tried 
to bring glory and renown to his Alma Mater. Nor have his activities 
been confined to athletics alone, for guided 
by the " Muses of the Crags," he has attained 
special prominence as a poet and writer. 
We are fortunate in having many men of 
Bennett's stamp in our class. All are his 
friends, and he is the friend of all. His great- 
est pleasure is to advance the interests of 
Class and College, and he goes forth into the

whatever, and most especially his classmates.

A hieed of praise for South Bos-

Edward Ignatius O'Brien, scientist,

hook-agent, orator, linguist, connois- 
seur of art, and leader in the social 
whirl. In such a nohle character it 
were difficult to find a flaw, yet we 
who know him intimately are obliged 
to say there is just one — a passion 
for the dance. Fortunately his indul- 
gence in this regard is limited by a 
close application to literary work. He 
conducts a column in the Boston Post under the " nom de plume" of 
"Mildred Champagne." His longer epic poems and a metrical trans- 
lation of " Hiawatha " into Italian are announced for publication in 
the spring of 1915. Withal he finds much time to devote to his beloved 
science, Phyiscs. Time was when Edward thundered his prelude, 
" We scientists say," and men like Professor Phelan, grown 
old in the study of science, would listen with admiration 
to the erudite exposition of difficulties in the domain of 
Physics. However, " we shall see about that later." At 
present Edward is engaged in research work in the hope 
of revealing to the world the solution of Jack Donovan's 
famous problem: — "Can an incandescent lamp be used 
for the same purpose as a hot-water bottle?"

Maurice J. O'Brien was born in

the list casually there is nothing 
astounding about that information, 
but when we understand that the

ber of the Senior class at Boston 
College, then the event marks a new 
epoch in world history. It has been 
affirmed by a microscopic inspection 
of the left-hand corner of the nose, 
that M. J. O'Brien liears a striking resemblance to the immortal 
Napoleon. About his early history there seems to be nothing startling 
except that he frequented the same apple yards as his predecessors. 
Having occupied a seat for some time at the Hugh O'Brien School in 
Roxbury, the powers decided that they needed the room and so 
presented Maurice with a diploma in 1905. He passed through Boston 
Latin School without any serious objection on the part of the faculty 
and graduated with the renowned class of 1909. 
But not until he entered Boston College did he 
realize his own tremendous possibilities. En- 
dowed with a magnetic personality and the 
power of estimating men, he soon became a 
prominent member of the class. Perhaps now 
and then he was unable to attain his ambitions, 
but his motto, " If defeated come back for an 
encore," inspired him with new life and acci- 
dentally some success. He is noteworthy as a 
modest youth, but when an office is at stake, all 
other matters are relegated to oblivion. What- 
ever walk of life M. J. O'Brien enters, it is certain 
that when the lesser lights have reached their

On a blustering day of March, 1891, 
Bud's melodious voice was heard for 
the first time as he burst into a lusty 
paen of joy at being born in the 
hitherto quiet city of Cambridge, 
Mass. After completing the course at 
the Latin School there, he looked 
around carefully for a college worthy 
of his efl'orts and not too far removed 
From Cambridge to prevent him pay- 
ing frequent visits to his many 
friends, not only in his home town 
but also in the surrounding suburbs, 

and finally decided to enter Boston w^ith the Class of '13. Since Bud's 

arrival at College the rooms on the James Street side of the Franklin 

Square House have been at a premium and Marenholz has been 

obliged to turn away countless applicants for the room facing the 

College. Although Bud himself would never mention the fact, he is, 

nevertheless, one of the best athletes and his defensive playing for 

the past three years has been a feature of 

the work of the Varsity football team, to say 

nothing of the fighting spirit he displayed on 

both Class and Varsity basketball teams. In 

order not disappoint his numerous friends 

among the fair sex, the Class elected Bud to 

the Junior Prom Committee, and needless to 

say, he shone resplendent not only on that 

occasion, but at every other class and social 

activity, where his " ivory " smile has been 

the cause of much admiration and envy.

The first time that " Doc " showed 
any success in startling the world was 
on August 3, 1891, when that particu- 
lar section of this mundane sphere 
known as Jamaica Plain was notified 
in no uncertain tones that one 
Francis Leo Phelan had arrived and 
had begun kicking obstacles out of his 
path to success. After due delibera- 
tion, " Doc " decided to shine in the 
intellectual firmament as a star of the 
first magnitude. We say he did this 
after due deliberation, for it is nearly 
impossible to imagine him doing anything without due deliberation; 
in fact, we expect one day to see him with the degree of D. D. (Doctor 
of Deliberation). His early years were devoted to the practice of 
becoming an intellectual sharp-shooter, (a sort of " shooting-star," as 
it were) so that whenever a prize is hung up now, " Doc " levels his 
trusty shotgun, and with one volley from the " Antecedent " barrel 
and another from the " Consequent " he lays his game low. " Doc's " 
aspirations run more to scholarship than to athletics, although we have 
it on good authority that he was nearly inveigled at one time into 
running a mile race with Sallaway. Be that as it may, " Doc " is 
always " in the race," whether it is a question of running for an office 
in the Fulton, or for the 8.27 " L " from Forest Hills. In addition 
to working enough hours per day to keep him " honor man " in 
the Class, " Doc " also finds time to debate and orate with con- 
siderable success, besides holding to the satisfaction of all the 
position of class beadle, in which he is a " plain, blunt man that 
knows his friends, and that they know full well."

the way, has served him well in many 
light places during these past four 
years, Frank came back in 1909. 
But lo! what lofty ideas this lad 
had, and they grew as he grew! For 
six years F. X. S. had gained a substantial purse in the Christian Doc- 
trine contests, and spending this surpertluous coin he got an insight 
into society and its extravagant ways. Nothing would please him then 
until he had ensnared the entire class, and lo! in our Junior year, by 
his eloquent descriptions of the splendor of " the upper ten " he pre- 
vailed upon us to conduct our Prom in Hotel Somerset. The way he 
guided our financial affairs made even the committee sit up and take 
notice and they haven't yet ceased giving him credit. With a deter- 
mination to go higher, he urged us to edit this, and under his splendid 
supervision and our watchful eye, the work was accomplished. Fitting 
victories they were to top off his many successes, for as an author and 
lingo poet the Stylus readers are yet to see his equal, in versatility at 
least. As a student he has taken all 
the fun out of the victory for the 
medal winner and as an orator he 
has added considerably to the excite- 
ment of several important contests, 
prize and intei'collegiate, and as a

do something better than its predecessors has been the aim of the 
class of nineteen-fourteen. Progi'ess and originality are its standards. 
Leadership among the classes of the College is the goal which it seeks, 
and has attained. 

Witness its first glorious victory when its Leo Murray, as a mere 
stripling, carried away the palm of victorj' in the oratorical contest 
from the choicest orators of the College. Then it was that it attracted 
attention. But, wait! Witness, again, another victory in the Marquette 
Prize Debate. Its Sullivan brought greater glory upon the class of 
nineteen-fourteen by his powers of debate. Its Bari-y was another 
competitor in this debate. 

Led by the genial Dawson the first year of college saw the class 
l^reemiinent in social affairs. First came a mosit successful dance 
at Catholic Union Hall. A banquet at Riverbank Covirt demonstrated 
that this class had the true college spirit. Its clever business agents. 
Quirk and Desmond, at all times show remarkable ability in accom- 
plishing things. 

Of course, its Brennan, Doyle and Dawson must not be forgotten 
on the roll of athletes. 

Who has not heard of the boy wonder, Mackenzie? His name 
is one of the proud boasts of nineteen-fourteen. It could hold up for 
emulation the keen mathematical abilily of its Collins, its MacGrath; 
it could point to the wonderful pen of its Sullivan, of its Taylor, its 
McGrail; lastly, it could urge all to make the acquaintance of its good 

With such a notable beginning, who could place limits to the 
future? As youngsters in the College our class had outstripped all 
the others. But its youthful spirit was not to be impeded. Greater 
honors it sought and obtained. 

The second year saw the class of nineteen-fourteen contribute

four to the Marquette Prize Debate. Murray, Quirk, Collins, and Barry 
were its defenders. Recall to your nnnds the second victory of Murray 
in the Oratorical contest. Hickey, Hogan, and Quirk entered the 
dramatic field as loyal members of nineteen-fourteen. 

And again, Brennan, Hickey, and MacGrath rejyesented the class 
upon the gridiron. All the lovers of style must model themselves after 
the " Class of the Class," John Keohane. He is the " glass of fashion 
and the mould of form." The baseball team contained the names of 
Devlin and Stenson. 

The second dance in Catholic Union Hall certainly was a notable 
success. Dawson again led the class with an able committee among 
whom may be mentioned Flaherty, " Tom " Devlin, and " Fred " 
Doyle. The Lenox Hotel was the scene of the second banquet of 
nineteen-fourteen. " Barney " McDonald was the master of affairs. 
Notice the progress. Don't lose sight of the fact that the class of 
nineteen-fourteen seeks after originality.

The delightful contributions of Sullivan, McGrail, Taylor and 
McKenzie to the Stylus were not diminished in the second year. Barry 
and Sullivan held the presidency of the Marquette Debating Society. 
McLaughlin, " Tom " Devlin, Hogan, and Hickey were honored with 
positions in this society. The close of the year saw Higgins claim the 
purse of fiftj' dollars for an original essay on "The Humor of 
Dickens." McKenzie showed himself a peerless scholar by winning a 
majority of prizes. Hurley, Collins, Murray, " Frank " Doyle, and a 
score of others were close competitors. 

Many familiar faces were no longer seen when the class of 
nineteen-fourteen started upon the third lap. The priesthood issued 
its call. A new face was seen. Cogan appeared. 

Now behold the value of progress. The wonderful Junior " Prom " 
of the class of nineteen-fourteen was held at the Somerset Hotel on 
January 30, 1913. Was it a success? Ask those who enjoyed that 
pleasure. Call around and see any of the members of the class of 
nineteen-fourteen, or other classes. Everybody is talking about it yet. 

Nothing can stop Murray from winning medals. In his avarice 
he annexed the Fulton Prize Medal. Sullivan was another of the 
contributors of this class. Sullivan, Murray, and Sallaway are to 
uphold the honor of the Fulton against Georgetown and Fordham. 
Two members from the class of nineteen-fourteen. That's rather fine. 

Philosophy has no terrors for this class. Murray, Keenan, 
McKenzie, converse and carry on disputations on philosophical propo- 
sitions in Latin. Think of that! Hurley, Fitzgerald, Joyce and 
Sullivan are but a few more of these young philosophers. 

Last of all, the beadle cannot be equalled. " Fred " Deasy has 
been the guardian of the lists for the last two years. The jug book 
has often told too plainly the story of his honesty and conscientious- 
ness. Like Horatius at the bridge, " Fred " guards the absentee and 
late lists. 

A kind remembrance to our professors who have stimulated the 
class in all its activities, social and intellectual. 

Let this history not close until we mention the legion of good 
fellows who, perhaps, have not burst the heavens with their flame, 
but who plug on daily in noble efforts. Some advice to all. Get to 
know the Class of 1914. Cultivate their acquaintance. It's worth your 
while. They are all good fellows, true representatives of B. C. boys.

[Nineteen fifteen! For three years this slogan has been re-echoing 
through the citj' of Boston. It was first sounded in the Cliamber of 
Commerce. Our clamoring presses next adopted it and sent its hopeful 
message into every corner of this vast land. It became universally 
known as a sj'uonym for prosperity. The day that witnessed the 
dawning of that year was to gaze upon a more extensive, a more 
l)eautiful, and a commercially supreme Boston. 

Hence it was that this charmed year gave all works that looked 
to its advent for completion, a prestige and activity which was 
peculiar to itself. Not even our schools escaped its influence. The 
classes to graduate in 1915 became subsidised, as it were, by activity. 
To this, the Freshman Class of nineteen-eleven, the largest that 
had ever entered Boston College, bears testimony. Confident in its 
strength, fortunate in its members, and spurred on by the omnipresent 
" Forward," it immediately took an unprecedented position in college 
life. There had been other Freshman Classes, but this one was so 
different. Its presence was ever felt. It left no field of endeavor 
untried, and no laurel was deemed too sacred for its brow. 

It sent its Wennerberg into the field of 
dramatics to present a highly commendable in- 
terpretation of "Hotspur" (Henry IV). Its 
Edward Farmer went up to the rostrum to over- 
whelm his opponents with an array of insuper- 
able arguments, while he hiinself, incidentally, 
won the medal offered by the Marquette Debat- 
ing Society. Its track team was the represent- 
ativ team of the College. Nor was this the 
end of its activity. The class of nineteen-fifteen 
gave to the College football team, and was 

^opl)oniorc Cla^s 

proud in the giving, such excellent players as Linehan, Brandon, 
Gavin, Gallaghei', Cunningham, and Mullen. 

Keeping in mind Emerson's axiom, " Hitch your wagon to a star," 
the class elected as its president, John Walsh. A very effective one 
he proved to be, and never for a moment was his ability questioned. 
John, as you know, had frequently led his competitors a merry chase 
in the old " gym," and now, through force of habit, he started his 
administration at a " four-forty clip," while the rest of the class trailed 
at his heels. Under his able guidance our ship of state rolled 
buoyantly on, making but two stops on the voyage. The first, in order 
that the crew niight brush off the tarnish of life in the enjoying of an 
evening of pleasure spent with the fairest of the fair, " their sisters," 
aniidst the radiance of the ball-room. The second, that they inight 
pledge anew their unswerving fidelity to College and to each other 
at the annual Freshman Banquet. 

The present scholastic year found us no longer Freshmen but 
Sophomores in grade, slightly older in years, considerably advanced 

g-ubSurrt Pa«pa2 

in knowledge, and still endowed with a persistence which has con- 
quered empires. 

Mechanics, a punishment which all Sophomores niust undergo, 
had taught us early in the year to figure to a nicety the amount of 
additional energy required to start an engine after it had stopped. 
Amazed at how much this amounted to in the daily run of a local 
train, we determined that the present Sophomore class would make 
no stops, but should ever be in progress. To ensure such advancement 
the class elected the able and afl'able Edward Farmer to spur us on. 
Frank Breath was elected to the office Avhich is second only to Mr. 
Farmer's, Richard O'Brien was entrusted with the office of treasurer, 
and Edward McLaughlin was elected secretary. With such men in, 
office the class saw nothing but success before them. 

The piece de resistance of the first term of Boston College social 
life is the Sophomore dance. For one evening we tossed our 
Demosthenes to an upper shelf, flung Tacitus to the winds and " tipped 
the light fantastic" at Horticultural Hall. The recollection of the 
pleasantry of that evening will remain long with us. Care and 
anxiety were submitted to Nature's all-healing balm. Mirth, and 
received from the contact an added impetus to go on and to achieve 
honors in keejiing with those of the past. 

In testimony of this, let me cite the recent presentation of 
" Macbeth " bj' the College dramatic society. The intelligent and con- 
scientious work of each member of that cast was deserving of high 
praise, but especially so were the efforts of James Dowling as Lady 
Macbeth and Frederick Wennerberg as Macbeth, both of the class 
of nineteen-fifteen. Witnessing the performance that night, it actually 
seemed as if the Macbeths had stepped out of the ages to hatch anew 
their foul plots and do once more their bloody work upon the stage 
of old Boston College. Let me also cite the recent success we achieved 
in the field of " pro and con," when Frederick Wennerberg won the 
medal offered by the Marquette Debating Society in its annual prize 
debate. Francis X. McCabe, '15, president of the society, proved himself 
an able chairman that evening. And last but not least, let the brawn 
and sinew, which we once more gave to College activities, verify my 
assertion. Leo McGovern and his relay team, composed entirely of 
Sophomores, have set a high standard for future college teams. 

The scholastic year of 1912-13 is fast waning. In but a few weeks 
we shall be no longer Sophomores but Juniors. They who are now 
Juniors will then be Seniors. Since our Sophomore days are nearly 
spent, let us ask om-selves if we have lived. What is the test of living? 
If he was right who said that the test of living is in working and acting, 
then we of the class of nineteen-fifteen have lived.

THREE years ago 1913, two years ago 1914, one year 
ago, 1915 was the class of importance in this College. 
But in 1913, 1916 is the class that has the class. 
Therefore all eyes and ears this way that ye that are 
hlind may hear and ye that ai-e deaf may read of the 
wonderful doings of this wonderful class. We are 
a great class. Others tell us — we admit it. Our 
ability, surpassing belief, is shown in every branch 
of College activity. Only in the little Green jug do 
we yield our supremacy and even that occasionally 
in its afternoon fullness spurts forth a member of 
Freshman A, B, or C. But then, it must be said, jug 
is not an activity. It is, on the contrary, a state of 
extreme passivity. 

Did some one ask to be introduced? Right this 
way, Sir. We really thought that everyone knew us, but then, for 
the benefit of the great unwashed, the unterrified, we will submit our 
most distinguished members to the humiliation of an introduction. 
First of all we wish to present D. Francis Ryan upon whom was 
imposed by unanimous conviction the sentence of wielding the gavel 
upon all — no, not heads — but upon all occasions of solemn conclave. 
It is true that Frank has no gavel; but when he delicately taps the 
table with the tip of a piece of paper rolled to a cigarette finish the 
desired effect is obtained. Frank is no bully nor much on size but 
when he takes the chair it is with the attitude, " If j^ou want to see 
who is BOSS round here — start something." He is right and we are 
all with him. 

The second victim of our generous unanimosity was Andrew 
Ramisch : he of oratorical fame. " Andy " scarcely needs this intro- 

What's that?

duction for everyone recalls the time he rode to fame on a " Dukite 

Leo Daley it was whom the class chose to fill the position of 
Secretary. When we say that he is as good here as on the gridiron 
well, NUF CED. 

It fell to the lot of Charles Hurlej' to handle the funds in the 
treasury'. Despite the lure of filthy lucre, the tempting taint of tar- 
nished gold, " Buck's " reputation is unhlemished. As honest as 
handsome and sweet is some compliment for his honor, the exchequer. 

We have said we are active in all College doings. Here's the 
proof. Where would the play have been without this gallant array 
of Booths and Garricks? Hinchey, Hendricks, Mclnnis, Ryan, Atkinson, 
Mahoney, Gillis, Feeney and Carney. Oh! And Taylor. "Dick", you 
know, was that inebriated individual that played his part so well 
that — well he almost landed in Station 5. 

Where would the Marquette Debating Society be without the 

agr35 SiubSurri 

portly presence of James Democracy Carens? They would surely be 
WITHOUT; for he keeps them in. His ponderosity adds great weight 
to his seat. How dry and uninteresting would have been the Prize 
Debate without Leander DeCelles — matchless wit, effusive poet, 
archaic mythologist and brilliant dramatist? Bj^ the way, we are 
privileged to announce that he is working on a new play: "Ten Knights 
in a Bath Tub ". The author promises us a good, clean show. 

What could the football team have done without Woods, " Buck " 
Hurley, Leo Daley, Duffy, Kiley, Hcffernan, " Doc " Fleming, Frank 
Rogers, Fallon and Conley. Many of these have something to show 
for their enthusiasm; notably, Fallon and Fleming — You may see it 
in their faces. 

Where would tiie relay team have been without Halloran, Duffy 
and Rowan. And yet these too, or is it three, were Freshmen. Fresh 
at the start; fresh through the race, and fresh at the finish. 

Not content with having won laurels for the College we wanted 
a few all our own. So, always progressive, ever anxious to go ourselves 
one better we organized a basketball and a hockey team. McManus 
managed the former while Atkinson arranged a fine schedule for his 
charges. Both these teams — Freshman teams — went through very 
successful seasons bringing home more triumphs to the class of 1916. 

And now our little tale is done. We have said our say. Not for 
lack of things to say have we stopped, but because we have said enough 
and are modest. Yes, modest. The only thing that we brag about is 
the fact that we never brag. And yet have we not reason to boast? 
Have we not in a single year shown our life and spirit; our brains as 
well as brawn; our skill and our art? We have shown ourselves, 'tis 
true; but not to the limit. Nor will another year show us to have 
reached our zenith. No, it is our purpose to grow and expand, but 
ever with Alma Mater's countersign — AD MAJOREM DEI GLORIAM 
— before our eyes, and never to rest content until our work is done. 
Our labors may take us far from Alma Mater. It has others: It will 
us. But no matter what the distance that separates us we will ever 
be loyal sons of a mother who teaches loyalty and ever will we strive 
to do our best that later sons of Boston College may look for their 
ideals and inspirations to the class of 1916 even as we look to those 
who have gone before us. 

Edwin A. Daley 

RESHMAN year found us like every class here, before and after 
us the largest in the history of the college. 

To give you, gentle readers, an insight into the four years which 
we, the class of 1913, have spent upon the good ship "Studiosus"; 
to give you a glimpse of our life upon the broad river of knowledge 
in search of the Pierian springs; to picture to you the eddies, whirl- 
pools, and rocky reefs towards which we have frequently been lured 
by the song of the siren only to steer away and seek the broad and 
open stream; to give to you some idea of the agonies whicli we have 
suffered when our intellects became parched with their thirst for 
knowledge, and also to disclose to j'ou the many pleasures and enjoy- 
ments which were used as oil to still the troubled waters surging 
around us, I shall unfold the story of those eventful days, gleaning my 
knowledge from the log of that good ship which has borne us in safety 
to our destination. 

About the middle of September, 1909, we set sail upon our cruise. 
Our vessel, like all Gaul, was divided into three parts, and carried a 
motley throng of some ninety passengers gathered mostly from all 
parts of Massachusetts, but containing a few who came from Rhode 
Island and were willing to admit it. Aboard our ship were three 
pilots, Fr. Maguire, S.J., Mr. Ignatius Cox, S.J., and Mr. David 
Cronin, S.J., all equally skilful at the helm and each claimed by one 
part of the ship as its own. Fr. Maquire having sailed before the 
mast for many a year, insisted that the two most dangerous points 
upon our journey, or anywhere upon the sea of life, were the Whiskey 
Springs and the Champagne Whirlpools. He was a strong lover of 
his native land and people and maintained that he never felt as safe 
as when upon a vessel, manned by an Irish crew, conversing in Gaelic. 

Mr. Cronin, likewise, had had some experience, but he maintained 

agpSf g>uh®urrt 

that in order to have a successful voj'age, we should work, work, and 
then work. One of our passengers, Harry Kane, mutinied under the 
orders of Mr. Cronin, but after considerable desultory warfare, it was 
unanimously decided that Mr. Cronin was the victor. 

Mr. Cox was making his maiden voyage aboard so large a ship, 
and consequently spent his time in learning the old channels, at the 
same time keeping a sharp look-out for new ones. 

A meeting of the passengers was called at which we decided to 
choose a president. James Daley was unanimously elected. 

After being out of port about a month, Fr. Maguire ceased active 
work and the ship was remodeled so as to contain only two parts; 
the passengers were re-assigned to their respective places, one-half 
of us claiming Mr. Cox for our pilot, and the other claiming Mr. 
Cronin. We sighted the ship upon which the class of 1910 were 
finishing their cruise, and having communicated with it, we were 
invited aboard for a smoke-talk. There we met the classes of 1910, 
1911, and 1912, and spent a most enjoyable evening, being highly 
amused by the versatile entertainers of the class of 1910, especially 
Coveney and Noonan. We clamored for a little excitement of our 
own and after a few stormy meetings decided upon running a dance, 
the committee for which was Daly — pardon me, I meant — duly 
appointed. During these meetings, all windows were ordered open, 
lest anyone should be prostrated by the hot air. After the meeting 
Jett' Hagerty, the Pepperell strong man, was sent downstairs to box 
the compass, and the compass won on points. He came up and 
reported finding Sallaway running around the lower deck in a 
gymnasium costume. Sallaway being questioned as to the reason 
of this, replied that he was training for a mile race with Doc Phelan 
to which he had been challenged but which unfortunately was never 
held. It was the concensus of opinion, however, that neither of them 
could run a mile. Our committee on banquets reported that we would 
stop over at Riverbank Court on the evening of January 29th and 
enjoy a banquet. 

In our mad search for wisdom we paused long enough to take 
aboard Fr. Doherty of Woodstock, who gave us our retreat, the first 
for many of us. At the Marquette Prize Debate held during April, 
Vincent Hickey was awarded the medal, and to him goes the honor 
of being the only one in our class to M'in a pi'ize for debating during 
our four years' journey. A baseball team was formed, which dis- 
tinguished itself in its famous no-hit, no-run game with Lynn 
Classical High School. A team chosen on its intellectual ability, how- 
ever, as was ours, is not quite as efficient as one chosen on the ability 

gjubSurri PagtSB 

of the players. Our long-anticipated dance was held on the 12th of 
May. Early in June Dick Kane, the man who made Fred Kimball 
famous, gathered us around him in the cabin and bade us a sad 
farewell. For provision he placed in a small boat the stock of knowl- 
edge he had acquired during the year (Mr. Cronin says it would have 
fitted in his watch-pocket without crowding the watch) and casting 
away the line that held him to us, we soon left him behind. On 
the sixteenth of June we stopped at the little town of Rest situated 
on Tranquility Bay, and here our superiors told us we were to stay 
till the following September, when we should re-embark upon our 
journey. Loud cheers greeted this announcement, and yet we were 
loath to separate from our fellow-passengers with whom we were 
now all well acquainted. We had a vague feeling, also, that there 
were some who would stroll too far from port and who would not 
be found when we should re-embark. We gladly welcomed the 
proffered respite from toil, however, and joj'fuUy scattered about in 
search of happiness and enjoyment. 

OPHOMORE Year found us re-assembled for our cruise on September 
1.1. Our vessel had been overhauled and now consisted of one main 
room under the command of Fr. Devlin, S. J. Many of our companions 
of the former journey were conspicuous by their absence. Among 
these were Tom Fitzgerald, Fred Foley, George Virgin, Leo Connolly, 
Ted Lavin, Jeff Hagerty, Joe Gaynor, Fred Kimball, and a few others 
who had strolled so far away that we can get no account of them. We 
gathered together for a re-election of officers. Matt Duggan being 
chosen president by acclamation. 

The Rev. Fr. Cusick, than whom no better pilot ever trod the deck 
of the " Studiosus," appeared upon the scene to teach us chemistry. 
After telling us the grave dangers of experiments with hydrogen and 
oxygen, and that whole classes had been killed performing them, he 
proceeded to unite the two with another substance to form a white 
light. The hydrogen hose broke and a lighted gas jet threatened ruin 
to the cabin. His quick presence of mind saved us, and having re- 
arranged his apparatus he announced that he would repeat the 
experiment. The scramble that followed this statement would make 
the rush hour in the Park Street subway look like a chess tournament. 

We spoke the ship that bore the class of 1911 and were invited 
aboard for a smoke-talk. There we met some men who had sailed 
this self-same river some years before, and who now gave us some 

J^agpga f-ubOIurrt 

impressions about the great world beyond. We listened with pleasure 
to James Dorsey, Timothy Murnane, and Hon. Joseph H. O'Neil. 

Fr. Cusick determined to displaj' to the passengers what some of 
us did not know about chemistry, and announced that a specimen 
would be held in the main saloon. Some one would have to demon- 
strate the blasting power of dynamite on brick to have any attention 
from our visitors. 

In a debate on the subject, "Did Hamlet delay?" the palm of 
victory was awarded to Gannon over his competitors, Phelan, 
Sallaway and Daley. 

One of our passengers, Brennan, joined with Sullivan, '14, and 
Barry, '14, to give battle to the Clark College cruiser. Arguments were 
used for weapons, and Clark went down to defeat. 

On January 17th we put ashore for our first college Home night. 
All those who, under the maroon and golden banner of old B. C, had 
traversed this broad stream before us, gathered together in one mighty 
body and Alma Mater opened wide her arms and welcomed " Home " 
with joy her returning sons. She rejoiced in the record they had 
made in the annals of church and state for loyalty, for justice, for 
civic integrity, and for true man-hood. To us, her younger sons, she 
said, " Go ye and do likewise." Two weeks later at Riverbank Court 
we enjoyed our sophomore banquet and there renewed the pleasures 
we had experienced at our Freshmen banquet the j-ear before. 

Fr. Devlin called all hands on deck and read a short passage from 
Kennedy's Cicero. To show that great minds run in the same channels, 
he then read twelve other papers written by passengers each containing 
exactly the same words as Kennedy. How Kennedy could have ootten 
his translations before ours were even written is something that has 
always been a cause of wonderment to me. 

Some one crowned Bill Flynn with a rubber which he promptly 
hurled out a window. To print what Bill said on this occasion in a 
Sunday school book would seriously hamper its sale. During the 
excitement attending tliis assault on Bill, Bro. Workhard stepped on 
a star-board tack and was carried below. 

Tom Gannon assisted in defeating Fordham in our annual debate. 

The Rev. Fr. Lane gave our retreat. At the close of the same, 
our pilot got everybody on deck by turning in a still alarm that the 
breakfast was on the house. The crowd dressed like Gus McMahon 
making the 8:17 train for Wilmington. This was the last occasion on 
which the house treated the crowd. 

About the middle of June, we slowly steamed into the harbor of 
Repose, dropped our anchors, and scattered abroad to come together 
the following September and take up the third stage of our journey. 

g-ubSurri Pagp Iflfl 

UNIOR Year discovered nine vacant chairs at our table when we 
first appeared for breakfast after resuming our journey on Sept- 
ember 11. Dowd, Linehan, Shea, and Rivers had been enchanted by 
the air and scenery of Brigliton, and had decided to tarry there for 
a few years. Bill Fh'nn had been felled by the dart of Cupid as he 
wandered through the streets of Lynn and thus ipso facto separated 
himself from us. Joseph J. Fitzgerald had taken up civil engineering, 
where on account of his extreme height he makes use of his own body 
as a rod. Ryan and Sullivan continued their quest for knowledge in 
other channels, and our old friend Pat Sherry decided to enter that 
most abused — and justly so — profession of book-agent. 

We had been out but a few days when we picked up a dory 
containing Jim Kelly and Fred Brady who said they had just deserted 
the good ship " Holy Cross." They were immediately introduced to 
our new pilot, Rev. Fr. Jessup. 

On account of his previous good work, Matthew Duggan was 
unanimously elected our president for a second term. He immediately 
took up the question of a Junior Prom., which was opposed by some, 
notably Sallaway, but in favor of which Daley gave fifty-seven varieties 
of reasons. 

Our old friend, Mr. Kiehne, S.J., appeared again upon the scene 
to teach us physics. He was considerably worried by the " ghost of 
the violin," and spent some time searching around the cabin for that 
funnj^ noise that sounded like a tuning fork to him. But like all true 
ghosts " it was here, it was there, it was everywhere," and Mr. Kiehne 
could not seem to locate it. To our physics course, however, is due 
our finding out " that the tinie for one complete osculation depends 
entirely on the circumstances." Overcome by this answer, Mr. Kiehne 
stuck his elbow into a jar of water and the panic that followed made 
a football scrimmage look like a procession of choir boys. 

All hands received a holiday to welcome our distinguished 
alumnus, William Cardinal O'Connell, and on March 19, a public 
reception to him took place. 

Jim Murray called us all on deck to see one of our small boats 
rapidly drawing away. The roll was called and Dan Hurld was 
discovered missing. All was soon clear to us. He had heard the song 
of the Lorelei and had fallen a victim to her charms. As he finally 
left our gaze he was rowing vigorously in the direction of Stoneham. 

Our one grand social event of the season, the Junior Prom, was 
held on April 12th. Disdaining all precedent, and desiring only the 
comfort, ease, and enjoyment of our guests, our committee secured 
the Somerset for the occasion. In brilliancy and numbers, our " Prom " 
far surpassed all those that had preceded it, and we set a standard 
up to which our successors can look for many a year to come. On 

agflOl S'ubOIurrt 

the first of May we heard some mention of a year-book and a committee 
of three was appointed to look into the feasibilitj^ of tlie matter. 

The question of a year-book, however, was completely over- 
shadowed by the question of officers for the fourth and last year of 
our cruise. Gannon was heralded as the logical candidate for presi- 
dent, Sallaway was advocated on account of his work for the class, 
while Brennan was proclaimed as the man with the watchword 
*' Equality." The campaign that followed would make a democratic 
caucus look like the jug-room on a holidaj'. Burke called a mass- 
meeting of his colleagues on the port side of the vessel and it almost 
turned turtle. " Trim the ship," roared our pilot, and Marty O'Connor 
arose to remark that we were severely handicapped as Henderson 
was the only dress-maker in the crowd. Gannon and Sallaway finally 
made a dash for the chair, and Gannon squeezed in ahead. 

In the Fulton debate we were represented bj^ Gannon; and in 
the oratorical contest by Casey, Phelan, Sallaway, and Gannon. 

Utterly fatigued by our exertions we dropped our anchors, and 
sought once more the comforts and enjoyments of vacation. 

In our astronomy class Brady tried to find the sun by the equator 
method; Donovan hit him just below the equinoctial colure and 
Doc Fitzgerald with the compass needle took seven stitches. In the 
chemistry room, the passengers received a turkish bath for which 
they had not paid and had no need. Truly did Shakcspere say 
" Macbeth shall sleep no more," for he will alwaj^s be a living character 
in our minds after this year's production. On January 30th we at- 
tended the Junior Prom., which in grandeur and magnificence rivalled 
our own the preceding year. To the Junior class we are deeply 
indebted for the glorious reception they tendered to us on that 
auspicious occasion. 

At the Fulton debate we were again represented by Tom Gannon 
and also bj' Frank Sallaway, Jack Casey acting as an alternate. 

At the annual home night, we met the grads and grad-nots and 
passed a pleasant evening in their companj\ Fr. Geoghan conducted 
our annual retreat, for us the last as students of Boston College. 

Now, dear reader, 1 have carried you close to the conclusion of 
our four years' sojourn. The Pierian springs so long sought by us 
appear almost within our grasp in the shape of an A.B. degree. 
Beyond this point, a heavy veil of fog shuts oflf my vision. But every 
cloud has its silver lining and so the keen eye of one of us has pierced 
the filmy veil that separates us from the future. To our class pi'ophet, 
therefore, do I humbly refer you if you desire to pursue further the 
history of the Class of 1913.

Is, to be fair and rich in marbled halls 

The only measure of our love for thee, 
Or thy fair turrets, thrust into the skies. 

The only subject of our hymn to thee? 

Ah! No! Our Mother, tho' thy worth be known 
In every clime, and through the world thy name 

Be honored in the councils of the great, 
And thy fair form be heralded by fame; 

Our love is not for this, but for thy care. 
That in our youthful minds thy precepts pure 

Be firmly fixed, so, in life's fearful war. 

Thou mightest know us guarded and secure. 

Though devious be the paths our feet must tread. 
Still, shall we prize the mem'ries of the past; 

The joys of love, the benedictions sweet, 

And happy hours, which time and change outlast. 

And we, thy latest sons, shall guard the joy 
Of all the golden days we've spent with thee; 

We'll love the love that thou hast borne us, boundless. 
As everlasting time and shoreless sea!

MONG the various college institutions, the monthly magazine is 
probably the best known and of the greatest importance. The Boston 
College Stylus has no\\' been in existence for nearly thirtj^ years, having 
been originated in 1884. The first editor-in-chief was Dr. Eugene Mc- 
Carthy, while intimately connected with him and aiding him with 
their best efforts were Rev. F. A. Cunningham, '84, and Mr. Timothy 
Coakley. It is always difficult to set forth ujjon its journey any new 
enterprise of this nature; and the founders of the Stylus were not in 
any way exempt from the general rule: thej^ met difficulties, and 
many of them. But they faced them all and in a spirit of persevering 
detei-mination they battled with every obstacle and were so far 
successful that they placed the Stylus on a fairly strong foundation. 
The so-called Stylus Association, that originated at the same time, 
did much by mass meetings and other well directed efforts to give the 
infant magazine publicity and to arouse the students and those in 
any way interested in the college itself to a proper spirit of apprecia- 
tion. The labors of these pioneers bore fruit and although the Stylus 
received somewhat of a setback several years after its birth, due to 
accumulation of adverse circumstances, yet on the whole it has 
prospered exceedingly and today ranks well among the leaders in 
college publications. 

The Stylus serves a two-fold purpose: it acts as an aid and an 
incentive to literary development among the students and has been 
the only means of communication between the Alumni and the Under- 
graduates. Its contents are varied and interesting: only the best 
contributions being accepted, and these, too, must have passed a certain 
standard. Brief, lyric poems, light, epigrammatic essays, short stories 
and an occasional long, critical essay constitute the text of the average 
monthly issue. The editorial columns. Alumni Acroama, Domi, Book 

#uh(2lurri Pagp IDB 

Review, Athletics, Exchanges, and Class Notes have alwaj's been in 
capable hands and of excellent literaiy character. 

Under the editorship of Thomas L. Gannon — the Stylus this year 
has well maintained its traditions. 

Matthew C. Duggan, '13, deserves great credit for his able perform- 
ance of his arduous duties of business manager. The other members 
of the present Senior Class who are members of the editing board are: 
John P. Curley, James M. Daley, Thomas F. Hanron, James P. Kelley, 
Bennet J. O'Brien, and Francis L. Phelan. The representatives of the 
other classes are : Patrick J. Dawson, '14, John J. Quirk, '14, John 
Taylor, '14, Edward A. Sullivan, '14, Fred W. Wennerberg, '15, Jas. 
W. Linnehan, '15, and Francis Ryan, '16.

The Fulton Debating Sbeiety, o£ Bos-

won the annual Intercollegiate debate 
with the Philodemlc Society, of George- 
town UnlveMity. The decision of the 
Judges In awarding the debate to the Ful-

through the deb.-ite, they freely admlttc^i 
that the best £i.1e won.

S far back as 1868, the spirits of Demosthenes, of Cicero, and of 
Chrysostom, imbued the students of the college, and the " Senior 
Debating Society " over which the late Rev. Fr. Fulton, S. J., first 
presided, was its result. Under this name the Society continued its 
work until November 7, 1890, when, acting upon the suggestion of the 
Reverend Moderator, Mr. A. J. Mullan, S. J., the Society voted to be 
known hencefortli as the Fulton Debating Society of Boston College. 
A seal was chosen, and to Mr. P. J. Scanncll, '94, was entrusted the 
work of engraving it. The design embodied " an eagle surmounting 
a scroll and a shield containing the portrait of Rev. Fr. Fulton, sur- 
mounted by a laurel wreath; the name of the Societj' at the base of 
the scroll; the date of its foundation set in a rosette at the lower part 
of the wreath, and the space between the upper portion and the arms 
of the same fdled by the motto ' Par Pari ' ". 

Every year since 1890, a prize debate has been held, and always 
before large and appreciative audiences. The winners of these debates 
have been : 

1890 William A. Murphy 1902 Joseph A. Lennon 

1891 Joseph C. Pelletier 1903 Philip F. Kennedy 

1892 Daniel J. Gallagher 1904 William T. Miller 

1893 John J. Douglass 1905 Edward J. Campbell 

1894 William L. Sullivan 1906 Andrew J. O'Brien 

1895 John J. Kirby 1907 John T. O'Hare 

1896 Michael J. Splaine 1908 James A. Coveney 

1897 Francis J. Carney 1909 John P. Manning, Jr. 

1898 Thomas B. Jameson 1910 Cornelius A. Guiney 

1899 John B. Doyle 1911 David B. Waters 

1900 Joseph L. Early 1912 Francis A. Harrington 

1901 Daniel A. B. Foley 1913 Leo M. Murray 

On December 29, 1890, in the College Hall, the members presented 
the " Great Breach of Promise Case of Robson vs. Chawley ", acquitting 
themselves with marked distinction. The fame of the Society grew 
apace and its public debates became " red-letter events " in educa- 
tional circles. A casual glance over the list of past judges reveals 
among others of almost equal prominence, the names of His Eminence, 
William Cardinal O'Connell, Hon. Frederick 0. Prince, Hon. Thomas 
J. Gargan, Richard H. Dana, John Boyle O'Reilly, James Jeffrey Roche, 
Gen. Francis A. Walker, Judge Joseph D. Fallon, Judge Robert Grant, 

g-ubSurri Pagpll2 

President E. H. Capen of Tufts, Jos. C. Pelletier, James J. Storrow, 
Hon. David I. Walsh, Louis Frothingham, and many more whose 
presence was indicative of the liigh rank which the Fulton held among 
the organizations of Boston. 

Of like interest with that of the prize debates, has been the 
enthusiasm and zeal manifested in the intercollegiate debates with 
Georgetown and Fordham. Although for a few years much of the 
old-time spirit lay quiescent, the resumption of relations with George- 
town and Fordham and the victories of the B. C. over both in 1910 
and 1911 have brought the old " Par Pari " of the Fulton once again 
to the fore. The laurels of the Society have been gleaned however, 
not only from contests with these sister colleges, but also in the contest 
with the Harvard Forum, which took place in the College Hall, on 
March 24, 1898. Moreover, to show their willingness to defend their 
reputation, the Fulton members at different times issued challenges 
to Dartmouth, Williams, Maine, Colbj', Bowdoin, and other colleges. 

The annual banquets of the Fulton, usually held during the 
Christmas holidaj's, were also for some years a favored fixture, and 
their lapse in recent times is a cause of regret which we hope to see 
removed in the not distant future. 

And now the Forum at University Heights beckons alluringly to 
the embryo orators, the shadowy forms of Demosthenes and Cicero 
hover like guardian genii over the rostrum and seats where, like the 
senators of ancient Bome, the sages of succeeding centuries will 
assemble to discuss the problems and shape the destiny of our country, 
to perpetuate the glories of the past, and by their deeds to make the 
Fulton of the future a credit to its traditions, to its founders, and to 
the Mother under whose guidance it has reached its place of honor 
among the debating societies of this country.

IGHTY oaks from littlo acorns grow " is an adage which can be most 
l\iai)propriately applied to the growth and achievements of tlie Marquette 
^Debating Society, lor tliis organization has arisen from an auxiliary 
club of the Fulton Debating Society to the position of the junior 
debating society of the college, with a record envied by many and 
equalled by few societies of a similar grade. 

The Marquette Society was founded in 1902 by the Rev. Redmond 
J. Walsh, S. J., former professor and prefect of studies of our college, 
to serve as an institution to accommodate those unable to gain admis- 
sion in the Fulton Society. But as time passed on, conditions changed, 
and the scope of the work of the Marquette Society changed, so that 
in a few years it became the junior society for members of the fresh- 
man and sophomore classes, and is now a society, the membership of 
which is recognized by the two youngest classes with as nruch respect 
as membership in the senior society is considered bj^ the two philosophy 

Negotiations were entered into with Clark College of Worcester, 
and as a result in 1910, a splendid and eloquent team, directed and 
assisted by Mr. Cox, well represented the Marquette Society at 

Success attended this first contest, and each j^ear since then, a 
friendly yet hard fought battle has ensued between the two colleges. 

For these past two years, the excellence of our junior debaters 
has steadily increased, a fact due to a great extent to their moderator, 
Mr. William F. McFadden, S. J., and the commendable work accom- 
plished by the Society shows the interest and enthusiasm instilled by 
the advice and encouragement of its present director. 

With its annual prize debate and intercollegiate contest, the 
Marquette Societ}' is fast advancing into the field of famous debating 
societies and is gradualh' attaining that high standard of excellence 
which its founder must have desired it to gain when he used his 
influence towards its formation. 

Its record speaks for itself, and admiration and congratulation 
on its marvelous growth cannot be too abundantly offered its moder- 
ators and members.

LTHOUGH well trained quartettes and soloists have been heard and 
sometimes applauded within the college walls, we were never before 
able to boast of a real, genuine glee club — and boast we maj^, for its 
ajipearance at college socials and prize debates has always merited 
and received only the highest praise. 

Whether it was due to the manj^ harmonious choristers that were 
forever bursting into songs or just his love of music that urged the 
organizer of the club, Joseph H. Gildea, '13, of Newton, to form such 
an organization matters not, but all that is necessary is to know that 
Joseph notified the various classes of his hopes and aspirations and 
then set about to attain them. 

Earnest work has been done by the members of the Club since 
the first days of its formation, and every eftort is being made to give 
the friends of the college, wlien they visit us at our debates and socials, 
the best in music and harmony.

BACK in the pioneer days of 1867 the first 
Shakespearean play at Boston College was 
enacted. In that year it was decided by those 
in authority that the presentation of one of 
the immortal plays by the students would be 
a great aid to them in the study of literature. 
And so " The Merchant of Venice " was chosen 
and staged under the direction of the well- 
beloved Father Fulton. The test proved of value and was followed the 
next year by "Julius Caesar," then by "Richard III," and in 1870 by 
" Coriolanus." Boston College had formed the habit of playing 
Shakespeare and hopes never to break it. 

Each year, with only a few exceptions at least, one of the plays 
has been given. As a result of this policy fourteen of the plays have 
been performed, and this is, as far as we know, a record for amateurs. 
In fact we know of no professional record surpassing this save that 
of the English actor, Ben Greet, who has prochiced twenty of the 
plays. This comparison is fair, for while our College casts change 
each year or two, all the fourteen plays have been given during the 
time that Mr. Willis has been in chai'ge of our dramatics. 

Of the forty-three Shakespearean pro- 
ductions given from 1867 to 1912, " The Mer- 
chant of Venice " and " Henry IV " have been 
most often portrayed, each having been per- 
formed seven times. " Richard III " comes next 
with five representations. " Julius Caesar" and 
" Macbeth " have been chosen each four times. 
" Hamlet " was enacted three times, " Corio- 
lanus," " Richard II," " King John," " Henrj"^ V," 
and " The Comedj' of Errors " were each given 
twice, while " King Lear," " The Tempest," 
and " Twelfth Night " are recorded each with 
one production. 

Of course there have been occasions when 
the play was repeated two or three nights in 
succession — the foregoing list indicates only 

ALAS Poor Yok/ck'. 
Yoo'(?£ ntOT THE ONLY

the number of times that the several plays were selected for the 
annual presentation. 

It is not within the scope of this article to give anything like a 
detailed account of dramatics at Boston College. There is not space 
here, nor was the necessary historical data at hand to undertake such 
a task. The writer has been asked only to set down a few facts and 
a few thoughts which come to him during an experience of some j'ears 
on our well-trodden stage. His time there has been spent more inside 
the wings than before the foot-lights, but even in that retirement he 
has not failed to appreciate the great benefit which comes to those 
who take part in these plays. 

To read one of these great works in the quiet of one's study is 
helpful. To see it performed by well-trained actors is perhaps better. 
But better still is the participation in the play itself, and this even 
though the student's part consist only in shouting with the mob, 
" Villains ! Traitors ! " or such like. It is necessary for the member 
of the cast to attend rehearsals day after day. From the frequent 
repetition he has memorized not only his own lines but those of many 
of the others in the play. He has seen all the principles of elocution 
exemplified. Under the guidance of a skilled director he has profited 
by his own mistakes and by those of others. He has seen hidden 
nreanings brought out and obscure passages made clear. He has seen 
a great episode vitalized, while at the same time his mind has been 
fdled with high thouglits and his ear attuned to the matchless majesty 
of the lines. He has learned something of the choice of words. He 
begins to know the use of imagery. He acquires a certain sense of 
harmony in sentence structure. He is impressed by the vigor of 
thought and the beauty of expression. His interest in the high class 
of dramas is stimulated. His ambition to become a good speaker is 
aroused. How many a graduate of Boston College who is today an 
orator of recognized ability may attribute the beginning of his faculty 
of speech to his college days when he 

" Did enact Julius Caesar and was accounted a good actor." 

As I write I have before me the record books of The Boston 
College Athenaeum. This was a dramatic society formed in 1891. The 
book contains the minutes of one hundred meetings during the yeai's 
from March 23, 1891, to May, 1894. Just one hundred meetings and 
then, though it was a splendid organization " it stopped short, never 
to go again," — wherefore I know not. I can only regret that such a 
useful society has not a place among the few organizations which are 
so fruitful of good to the students at our Alma Mater. 

In its methods The Athenaeum was very similar to its debating 
societies. These latter devote their time to the science of debate, their 
public appearance being in a prize debate. The object of the former 
was to study the drama and to prepare for the annual play. At each 

a g p 12 1 

of the weekly meetings some member who had 
been previously appointed read an essaj' on the 
play under consideration, or on some particular 
scene or character of the play. Four or five 
members who had also been appointed two 
weeks previously would then enact one of the 
scenes. A stage-manager was chosen for each 
meeting and also a critic. 

Any notice of Boston College Dramatics, 
however brief, would be incomplete without a 
reference to Mr. Joseph H. Willis of the Class of 
1890. As student and teacher he has had an 
experience of twenty-eight years on our stage. 

In his student days Mr. Willis played Bassanio in that memorable 
production of '85. Later he won fame as King Robert of Sicilj' and 
as a crown for his student efforts he played the greatest of all — Hamlet. 

His many years of study of the classical drama, together with his 
intense dramatic power, have made him an ideal instructor. Had he 
chosen the stage as ills profession he might easily have rivalled the 
leaders of the art in America. But he has remained at his Alma Mater, 
giving to her sons the benefits of his splendid abilities. Those who 
have played under his direction know him as the tireless worker, the 
finished actor, the kind friend. They admire him for his fine talent, 
they love him for his charming personality. 

Of course there were plaj^s other than those of Shakespeare given 
at the College. The first of these was Handy Andy, produced in 1870. 
Among other plays were William Tell, Sebastian the Martyr, Rob Roy, 
Guy Mannering, The School for Scandal, The Rivals, and The Fool's 

French plays have not been wanting. In 1901 L' Academic 
Fran9aise under the direction of Professor Moreira enacted Les 
Enfants d' Edouard, a play which bj^ reason of its metrical structure 
is not often attempted by English-speaking students. Coming down 
to more immediate times four French plays were staged by Father 
De Butler. These were Les Memoires du Diable, Brouilles Depuis 
Wagram, L' Avocat Patelin, and Le Medicin Malgre Lui. The first of 
these Avas given by the College students only, and the three last by 
the High School boys among whom were several from the classes of 
First Year French. This fact becomes more remarkable when we 
consider the excellence of the performances, for they were of a very 
high order. Father De Butler is not easily satisfied. With him it is 
" Tout bein, on rein," and that is why people well acquainted with the 
French drama have written to tell him of the great delight they took 
in the performance of his boys. 

The writer has knowledge of only one play ever attempted in 

ubEurrt ^ a gs 1 2 2 

German and this was William Tell. The Class of '72 gave this play 
in English, but it was left for the Class of 1910 to try it in the language 
of Schiller. This was in 1907. Certain scenes were given a private 
production, and those who saw the piece said that the lines were 
" well spoken, with good accent and good discretion." 

Oh yes, let us cling to our Shakespeare. Nothing can take its 
place. But it is the dawn of a new day. Increased opportunity is at 
hand. Boston College has outgrown her old home. " The mast and 
wheel " are no longer at her door. She has won the " lawn and 
woodland dell " which the Poet of the Class of '80 spoke of with some- 
thing like prophecy. 

Now may our actors when the weather is fine practice in the clear 
open air of University Heights and so improve their voices. And 
wlw should they not set their scene there on the greensward, so that 
some sunny afternoon in the early summer we maj' all go out to The 
Heights and sec " As You Like It " played where Arden Forest will be 
real trees and where the illumination will be the sunlight sifting down 
through the leaves or Hashing back from the bosom of the lake. Or 
perhaps the Freshnien in that same beautiful setting will favor us 
with a performance of Duo Captivi as it was done in the time of 
Plautus, or the Sophomores give us an opportunity to see the Oedipus 
Tyranus or Agamemnon in the original Greek. Why should we not 
have something of this sort? Heretofore the opportunity has been 
lacking, but now it has come. Colleges that do not spend half the 
serious effort on Greek that we at Boston College do have enacted 
the Greek dramas. 

I offer this suggestion not in the hope that a Greek play if well 
presented would purchase for us golden opinions for scholarship. 
It would, but that is of secondary importance. The scholarship itself 
conies first. We have it already — let us improve upon it. The 
thorough understanding of the Greek text, the commitment of the lines 
to memory, the intelligent reading of them with proper and precise 
enunciation — all these things mean mental culture and that is what 
we want. I am not defending a thesis on the value of Latin or Greek 
in education, but only expressing a hope that new opportunities will 
awaken within us the desire to improve them.

N the early days of the Society of Jesus, a young Jesuit from 
Belgium, John Leon by name, was sent to teach in the Roman College, 
which was the principal college of the Society. He was a man of great 
holiness, and filled wilii a profoimd devotion to the Immaculate Mother 
of (lod. It was in the early days of the sixteentii century when the 
Church was suffering cruel persecution and the faith of men was sorely 
shaken. To promote iier iionor, to inspire devotion, and to implore 
the protection of the Queen of Heaven the young man began to assemble 
his students, and with prayer and hymns pay homage to Mary. The 
effects were soon shown. The boys became the most exemplaiy in 
the college and attracted the most favorable attention. The next year 
the Sodality numl)ered seventy and rules were formulated to govern 
it. From that time its growtii was rapid, and it s])read among the 
students of all the Jesuit colleges of Europe. In l.oSl, Pope Gregory 
XVIII at the petition of the Jesuit Ceneral gave it tiie sanction of the 
Church, and established the one in Rome as the First Primary, the 
Mother Sodality of the world. 

As the years went by, the Sodality ])assed beyond the Ijounds of 
the university to the universal church. From then until the present, 
in every Jesuit college, large or small, in the old world and in the new, 
it has been the chief, the tvjjical society, and thousands upon thousands 
of men, many the most illustrious in Church and Slate, have enrolled 
themselves beneath its stainless standard. 

True to the standards of the Order in the year 1868, when the 
newly established college at Boston was struggling for its existence, 
a sodality was founded and affiliated with the First Primary in Rome, 
under the title of the Immaculate Conception, and under the patronage 
of the gentle St. Stanislaus Kostka. While other societies of the 
college have had their periods of ditficulty and even oblivion the 
Sodality has never suffered a check. The Immaculate Mother has 
guarded her sons. 

The purpose of the Sodality is to arouse and foster in the souls of 
its members a special devotion to the Blessed Virgin, and to encourage 
more than ordinary goodness among the students. The noble efforts 
of Sodalists in the past to live up to this high ideal, and the faithfulness 
of the Virgin, most faithful to those who have become " specialiter 
mancipatis ", is the secret of the success and the spread of the Sodality.

^nig|)ts of Ci)c 33lesseti Sacrament 

" I found Him in the shining of tlic stars, 
I marked Him in tlie flowering of the fields, 
But in His ways with men I found Him not." 

HE bold Sir Beviderc heard these moanings from the tent of the great 
King Arthur just before the "last weird battle of the West." 

Arthur was discouraged; many of his tried and trusted knights 
had failed him and his heart was well-nigh broken ere he fought his 
last great fight. Arthur's Knights are gone and the Bound Table is 
no more, but Arthur's cause still lives, and the Bound Table is replaced 
by the Holy Banquet Table, where hundreds of thousands gather today 
and learn the spirit of eternal knighthood. 

It was to serve this cause, to preserve this spirit of knightly 
purity, to stand in the courts of the King, as faithful attendants at the 
Great Banquet Table, that sixty yoimg men of Boston College, on the 
feast of Corpus Cliristi, 1911, assembled in the Sodality chapel and 
for the first time pledged their word to join Christ's Knighthood and 
to receive Him in Holy Conmiunion at least once a week. Thus in 
silence and lowliness the " Knights of the Blessed Sacrament " were 

The sequel of this lowly beginning was seen on the feast of All 
Saints, 1912. In the upper church seven hundred boj's of the College 
and High School met at the Eucharistic Banquet, and from seven 
hundrecl youthful hearts went up the prayer: 

" We come before Thee, dear Jesus, to promise lifelong fealty and 
devotion to Thy sacred cause and ask admission to the bodyguard of 
devoted Knights who guard Thy altar throne." 

The prosperity of the Knights of the Blessed Sacrament is a fair 
index of the ideals of Boston College boys, and of the great work of 
spiritual upbuilding and interior sanctiflcation going on in their 
hearts. The idea has spread abroad; it has taken root in St. Francis 
Xavier College, New York. Thence it has spread to many parochial 
schools of the citJ^ B. C, however, will ever be regarded as the cradle 
of this inspiring and uplifting knighthood. 

Men are prone in these days to look for God in Nature, in the 
" shining of the stars," nay, even to deny that God is in the heavens 
and that the heavens themselves tell of His glory. " In His ways with 
men, they find Him not." The Knights of the Blessed Sacrament are 
living examples of the truth that " In His ways with men Christ can 
be found," indeed it is His delight to " be with the children of men." 


HE Varsity team of 1909, under the leadership of Captain Pierce, 
passed through a very successful season. Dr. Maguire's coaching was 
of the liighest order and a well-hahinced team was the result. 

The season of 1910 marked the renewal of athletic relations with 
Holy Cross on the gridiron. The Worcester boj's had a great advan- 
tage in weight, hut we were saved from a " whitewash " bj' Leonard's 
clever goal from the field. The team suffered a great loss when 
Captain Ed. Hartigan left for West Point. 

Jack Hartigan's 1911 team was one of the scrappiest ever turned 
out at James Street. The Holy Cross game was a very bitter contest. 
The score was 12 to 0, with us at the short end, but this did not show 
the real story of the contest. 

The following week the team ^^ journeyed to Maine and 

held the strong Colby 
eleven scoreless for 
three periods. They 
only succeeded in 
wresting the game from 
us when our lighter 
team was completely 

The next year Har- 
tigan was again chosen 
We were handicapped 

to lead the team 

from the start by injuries sustained bj' 
several of our best men. Coach Joy 
worked untiringly, and the fact that the 
eleven finished up strong may be at- 
tributed for the most part to his efforts 
in their behalf. 

The prospec/ts 
for a good team in 
1913 are better 
than ever before, 
as only two men 
are lost by gradu- 
ation. We look for- 
ward with confi- 
dence to a team 
superior to any 
that has worn the 
maroon and gold.

ITH but thi-ee men back from the 1909 team, the prospects for a good 
team were not over-bright. The nine was strengthened, however, by 
the acquisition of Harrington and Mahoney from Holy Cross and by 
the development of several promising men from the lower classes. 
The sole representative of the Senior class was " Bud " Ryan, who 
captained and played center field on the team — Junior, Sophomore, 
and Freshman were fairly evenly represented, with the last two named 
having two men each and Junior having three players from her ranks 
on the nine. 

Harrington bore the brunt of the work in the box and the success 
of the team was due in no small measure to his all-around efTiciency. 
Falvey, a hitherto unknown quantity, proved to be a capable catcher. 

Mahoney covered first base, and Donahue, Lowe, and Murphy 
completed the infield. McDonald, Mclntyre, and Ryan filled the out- 
field positions. The team played fifteen games during the season and 
was the winner in twelve of these. David B. Waters managed the nine. 


Unlike the 1910 team, that of 1911 was composed almost entirely 
of veterans, having a nucleus of six former players around which to 
build up a nine. The new men on the team were Halligan and 
Donovan in the infield and O'Brien in the outfield; of the 1910 team, 
McDonald, Falvey, Han-ington, Lowe, Mahoney, and Murphy still 
remained in College. 

#ub®urri ^PaSf 130 

Harrington proved to be ffilly as successful during this season 
as he had been the year before, while Lowe, who had played shortstop 
on the 1910 team, also proved to be a reliable pitcher. Falvey again 
caught and his ett'ective throwing made base-stealing hazardous for 
his opponents. 

Captain Mahoney was in his old position at first base, Donovan 
and Halligan covered second base and shortstop respectively, while 
McDonald, who was shifted from the outfield, filled in at third base. 

The outfield consisted of Miu'phy in left, O'Brien in center, and 
either Lowe, Harrington, or Butler in right field. 

During the season the team was successful in ten of the sixteen 
games jjlayed. Raymond Lyons was manager of the nine. 


The outlook for 1913 seems to be very promising. After defeating 
Tufts 8 to in a practice game, the first scheduled game of the season 
was lost 1 to to Exeter. The last two games, however, against Colby 
and St. Michael's College, have been easy victories. 

Outside of the pitching department, where neither Woods nor 
Halloran measures up to the standard set by Harrington, the team is 
fully as strong as those of recent years. The outfield in particular, 
with Larry Conley in left, Linehan in center, and Captain Murphy in 
right field, is very fast and has compared very creditably with those 
of our opponents. 

In the infield, the work of Bob Conley, at third base, has been a 
feature of the early games, and his playing has been ably seconded 
by McDonald, Mauley, Barry, and O'Day, the first two named alternat- 
ing at shortstop, Barry playing second, and O'Day first base. 

Nelson, besides being a clever catcher, is a consistent hitter, and 
his extra-base drives have contributed materially to the first two 
victories of the season. 

Francis A. Burke is manager of the nine.

FTPjR meeting some of the best colleges in the country during the past 
indoor season, the track team of 1912-1913 finished its work witli a 
credilaljle record tliat gives great promise for tlie future. Entered 
in practically every important local meet by its manager, Irving J. 
§:^ Heatii, '13, of East Boston, the team, even though composed of only 
freshmen and sopiiomores, carried out its part of the program in a 
praiseworthy manner, whetiier ijringing home victory or succumbing 
to defeat only after a closely-contested struggle. 

Perhaps the stellar event of the track season was the annual 
indoor meet held last February under the auspices of the College 
in the " James Street Gym." A more carefully prepared and system- 
aticalty conducted affair could not be desired. Nor were our own 
men wanting in the final tally, for almost every event saw the maroon 
and gold strijjed jersey among the leaders. 

Among the runners who represented the College during the year, 
great credit is due the captain, Leo M. McGovern, '15, of Brighton, 
who proved himself to be a helpful assistant to Coach Duffey, Daniel 
Sullivan, and James Duit'y, who gained places in nearly everj^ local 
meet of the past winter. John J. Walsh, Harold Rowen and Leo M. 
Halloren showed themselves to be among the speediest members of 
the squad and thus won places on the relay team. 

But all the good work would not have been accomplished but for 
the earnest and conscientious training given the men by Arthur F. 
Dufl'ey, the former world's champion sprinter, and the energetic and 
entliusiastic managing of Irving J. Heath, who not only saw that the 
College was fittingly represented at the various meets, but who also 
headed the committee in charge of our own indoor meet. 

Great results for future years are looked for by the many admirers 
of track, athletics, and hopes to see Boston once more take her place 
among the prominent colleges of the country in this particular line 
of endeavor are held by all.

HE last basketball team to represent the College was in 1910-11. Most 
probablj' this was the last team that will represent the Maroon and 
Gold in the indoor game and its record was the equal of any that have 
worn the colors of B. C. Although defeated by narrow margins in 
the two opening games, that were played on strange floors with Tech 
and Tufts respectively, the five found itself later in the season, and 
scored decisive victories over Gushing and Andover, displaying fast 
form in these and in all the subsequent games. The season's record 
was more noteworthy since the team did not have the gymnasium 
facilities that were enjoyed by all its opponents, but was obliged to 
restrict its practice to two short afternoons a week in one of the 
municipal gynis. However, bright prospects were in sight for the 
next year, but the sport became unpopular among the Eastern colleges, 
and at B. C. it also became a victim of the waning interest. 

The team was captained by "Matt" Duggan, and the success that 
it experienced during the season was due in no small degree to his 
accurate shooting, generalship and all-around ability. Without a 
doubt " Matt " was the fastest player we ever had at B. C. 

The last Varsity team consisted of Captain Duggan, Gallagher, 
Hartigan, Haskell, I. Heath, L. Heath, and O'Connor; Geo. Fitzgerald,

The maple waved like a flame of gold, The maple groaned in the blinding storm. 

And down on the brown grass tenderly And the death-chill, biting crnelly, 
Its million trembling tribntes tolled. Withered the angry surge's foam. 

On the little red house the woodbine burned. On the little red house the snow fell down. 

And the little pale child was smiling. And the little pale child was weeping. 

In the open field by the open sea 

The maple stands like an emerald pile. 
And down in the green grass wondrously 

The bashful, blue-veined violets smile. 
On the long, low hill the breezes sigh. 
Where the little pale child is sleeping.
